This chapter details the aim of this study, which is to identify the proper and cost-effective model of service delivery and level of provision of palliative care services. In it, the ten questions that were geared to meet and address the overall aim of the study are outlined. These ten questions address 1) the pattern of palliative care usage, 2) the level of need for palliative care, 3) the models for palliative care, 4) the costs and benefits of the models of palliative care, 5) the appropriate skill mix in palliative care nursing, 6) patient and carer satisfaction, 7) the impact of palliative care models on the quality of life of the patients, 8) the impact of the alternative models of service delivery on the sectors of the palliative care network, 9) the changes and improvements brought about by the models of organisation and bed utilisation in the care of dying patients in hospitals, and 10) the relationship between the models of palliative care in cancer and in other diseases.
