Coordinated Palliative Care in Graz
- Graz (Styria)
- Target group:
- Clients with chronic and terminal illnesses living at home
The aim of this organisation is to coordinate the establishment and further development of hospices and palliative services in residential and community care, in particular by means of multi-professional mobile palliative care teams, in the region of Styria (our main focus will be on the area of Graz). This includes the improvement of quality, cooperation between relevant facilities specialised in palliative care and general health and social care services, as well as education and training in this field. The organisation has succeeded to receive mainstream-funding for currently nine mobile palliative care teams that offer services free of charge and cover the whole of Styria. The teams are involving volunteers in a coordinated manner and cooperate with a wide range of partners from hospitals to primary care, including home care and residential facilities.
