In a nutshell:  This article proposes a strategic approach to evaluate palliative care networks (PCNs) with particular emphasis on how well professionals collaborate, how client-centred their focus is and how community-ready they are.  The proposed systems approach is designed to guide evaluation of PCNs in order to promote collaboration and establish networks that provide optimum care for patients.
