I work as a speciality doctor in Palliative care mainly in the hospice and community environment. Involvement in the Audit process is a valuable experience not only for my own professional development, but more importantly to promote and enhance the evidence base available to guide clinical practice. Pallaborative north west is an essential encyclopaedia for any professional who has contact with palliative care patients.
