Over the last three decades palliative care has emerged as a discrete specialty that has brought with it a developing field of education. Problematic areas have been identified within palliative care education that may limit its effectiveness. Areas of particular concern are identified that may prove obstructive in the pursuit of effectiveness in palliative care education. The possibility of developing performance indicators is explored with reference to the development of such indicators in other areas of education. Proposals are made as a starting point for the evolution of such indicators.
