2nd PACE User Forum is held in Brussels

Friday 09 March 2018

PACE is a FP7-funded project looking at palliative care for older people in care and nursing homes in Europe. As part of this 5-year project, two different studies have been carried out looking at the quality of palliative care provided in long-term care facilities in Europe. In addition, the project is developing policy recommendations to inform and assist policy and decision-makers. The 2nd User Forum was organised by AGE platform Europe and was attended by members of the AGE’s Task Force on Dignified Ageing, AE representatives and members of the PACE consortium. The forum built on other past similar events held in 2015 and 2016, where some of the key challenges for the provision of good quality palliative care in nursing homes were identified. The 2nd User Forum focused on the policy actions needed to overcome these key challenges and which would enable better access. The input provided in the user forums, together with the conclusions of similar events organised by AE on dementia, and the results of the different studies carried out by the PACE consortium, will form the basis of the PACE Policy Recommendations which will be published before the end of 2018. Ana Diaz, Vanessa Challinor and Sabine Henry participated in the event.

The PACE project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 603111.
