In a nutshell: This qualitative study explores how transitions to a palliative care approach are perceived to be managed in acute hospital settings in England. The article concludes that significant barriers to implementing a policy of structured transitions to palliative care in acute hospitals were identified by health professionals in both primary and secondary care. These need to be addressed if current UK policy on management of palliative care in acute hospitals is to be established.
