High-quality randomized trials in hospice and palliative care are achievable to provide quality evidence to guide our practice especially if several sites work together to conduct the trial. Palliative medicine is a specialty that is contributing more and more to the care of patients with life limiting disease. It is time we based this practice on highquality evidence and that can only come with high-quality research.
