Useful links and organisations
There are a number of other organisations and links which will provide further information.
An official journal of Hospice UK and qualifying member hospices benefit from free access to the print version of the journal, plus a discount on the cost of an institutional online and print and/or online only annual subscription to the journal. As the publisher has separate arrangements with NHS institutions, qualifying members for this offer are local independent charitable hospices and those hospices run by national charities.

Join our Community of Practice
Hospice UK has recently established a Research and Outcomes Community of Practice. This group will be made up of a monthly newsletter as well as a Hospice IQ forum to support ‘Research Active Hospices’ and ‘Outcome Measures’ to support best practice including the OACC suite of Outcome measures.
The purpose of the forum and Community of Practice is to be able to discuss, share and debate all the issues relating to research and outcomes.
You can register for the new group by visiting the sign up page on our website.
