Abstract

The purpose of this study was to establish the prevalence and incidence of people with problematic substance use receiving or in need of end of life and palliative care. A strategic search for available databases, datasets and reports based on datasets was carried out, supported by consultation with key informants for further sources of data. The sources of evidence found, however, do not directly identify this population group. The findings indicate that data is not routinely recorded that specifies whether a person receiving hospital, hospice or community end of life care has, or has had, problems with substance use. Neither does data from substance use treatment populations include any record of end of life care.
