Abstract

We reviewed telehealth applications which were being used in palliative care settings in the UK. Electronic database searches (Medline, CINAHL, PsychInfo and Embase), searches of the grey literature and cited author searches were conducted. In total, 111 papers were identified and 21 documents were included in the review. Telehealth was being used by a range of health professionals in oncology care settings that included specialist palliative care, hospices, primary care settings, nursing homes and hospitals as well as patients and carers.
