 Charles has published nearly 200 papers on health economics, and has been actively involved in the management of services and service delivery.  His work in palliative care has covered issues around costs, ways of assessing benefits and what people want from services. This seminar will discuss findings studies on the effects on costs of palliative care teams in hospitals. First, timing of such interventions is crucial and second, the effects are very dependent on patterns of illness.  Risks of overtreatment are higher in patients with complex needs, which brings higher costs.
