This chapter discusses palliative care as observed and practiced in hospitals. It is based on a review of 62 papers that centres on the care of people dying in hospitals. These papers documented the existing deficiencies in the care of patients dying in hospitals and provide recommendations for its improvement. The majority of the papers used in this chapter were published in both the UK and US. Aside from documenting the palliative care deficiencies in hospitals, the reviewed papers also disclosed the stark contrast between the palliative care practices in both countries. Cost effectiveness of the different models of care services received little attention in the UK researches and was confined almost solely to American studies. The chapter begins with some background literature before proceeding to in-depth evaluative studies of hospital palliative care.
