The overall aim of the PACE - comparing the effectiveness of PAlliative Care for Elderly people in long-term care facilities in Europe - project is to develop tools to assist practitioners and policy- and decision-makers to make evidence-based decisions regarding best palliative care practices in long-term care facilities in Europe. PACE will help to achieve the objectives of the European 2020 Strategy, specifically the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. Ultimately this will lead to optimizing the delivery of palliative care to the large proportion of EU citizens living and dying in old age.

The PACE project is built on a consortium of 12 partners, consisting of 8 research institutes, spanning 6 European countries, and 4 European organizations responsible for impact and dissemination.
