    We present a research system with administration norms included. This system was used in a multicentric study on 371 terminal patients (314 oncologic and 57 AIDS). This work was carried out simultaneously in 15 hospitals (13 Spanish and 2 Latin American). The main object of this paper is to provide other researchers with a model (that of course can be improved) to serve as a basis for further research, thus helping to construct new research instruments. Our research has shown that one can attain interesting results using modest resources.
