This chapter discusses the probable use of experimental and quasi-experimental research designs in palliative care. In order to describe the most common non-experimental study designs that are used in palliative care research, classical epidemiological methods are used throughout this chapter. The discussion also looks at the methodological issues used in testing hypotheses of association between two or more variables.
