PACE consortium meets in Treviso, Italy

Monday 08 May 2017

On 8 and 9 May, in Treviso, Italy, the EU-funded project PACE - Comparing Palliative Care in Care Homes Across Europe - held a General Assembly and a Consortium Meeting, including two Impact and Dissemination meetings.

During the two-day consortium meeting, delegates were informed about some of the findings of PACE’s Study I - a large-scale cross-sectional study, which has looked at the effectiveness of health care systems with and without formal palliative care structures in six EU countries. In particular, the study has evaluated the residents’ quality of life and quality of dying, the quality of the palliative care provided, and cost-effectiveness issues, as well as the staff’s knowledge, practices, and attitudes.

During the second day of the meeting, AGE platform and Alzheimer Europe (AE), conducted a workshop on planning the work towards the project Policy Recommendations. In the workshop, partners of the consortium discussed the main aims and scope of the recommendations, the methodology and timeframe that will be used, and what PACE researchers can contribute to the development of these recommendations.

Delegates also heard about the recent conference on palliative care in Poland organised by the Polish PACE partner, and how the event had contributed to raising awareness of palliative care in the country.

Director for Projects Dianne Gove and Project Officer Ana Diaz attended the meeting on behalf of AE.
