This chapter discusses the conclusions derived from the review presented in this book. It concludes that the findings of the review are positive. The review has introduced a new kind of care and has offered significant new knowledge and skills for the staff and care-givers in the palliative care network. It has also introduced a different type of palliative care innovation that uses voluntary rather than government funding. This new programme posed a great challenge to the traditional and conventional stereotypes of UK and US healthcare. In this chapter, the foreseeable changes in the field of palliative care are outlined. These are changes in the age target and age priority of palliative care, and in the boundaries between palliative care and care of long-term chronic illness, and an increase in the shift of care towards home and community and in the costs of palliative care. The chapter also provides suggestions for addressing the still-unexplored sectors of palliative care, such as the changing patient need, the new challenges in therapy, and the changing models of care.
