SPICT™ Programme

The SPICT™ (Supportive & Palliative Care Indicators Tool) is a clinical tool first developed in 2010 as a collaborative project between NHS Lothian and The University of Edinburgh Primary Palliative Care Research Group. Since then, our international community of colleagues has continued to grow. We work together to improve the SPICT™ and we share ideas about how SPICT™ can be used to improve the care of people with advanced illnesses and their families.

The SPICT programme is based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

 SPICT Programme leads:

Dr Kirsty Boyd – Consultant in Palliative Medicine

Professor Scott Murray – St Columba’s Professor of Primary Palliative Care
