In a nutshell: This article explores the development, implementation and evaluation of a palliative care resource scheme in a district general hospital in Mid Gamorgan, Wales. The evolution of the resource scheme and how the hospital specialist palliative care team identified the need for improved patient care on hospital wards is discussed, in addition to how using their specialist role combined with education can implement change. The resource enhances the knowledge of the practitioners who have completed it and also formalizes and expands the working links between education and clinical practice. It is hoped to continue and develop the scheme to further enhance the collaborative partnerships.
