 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'New knowledge is not necessarily readily applied in medicine, even when there is evidence of its effectiveness. As a result of the gap between knowing and doing, policy makers, professional care providers, patients and their families have benefited too little from new developments. Implementation research has developed models for stepwise implementation but it is still unclear which strategies are effective for whom and which factors influence the effectiveness of implementation strategies. From the point of view of implementation sciences changing palliative care is a major challenge, since adequate organization of palliative care requires collaboration between a range of different professionals and healthcare organizations. Besides, as a consequence of the ageing population, the number of people in need for cancer and dementia palliative care will rise. Therefore we will focus on implementation strategies in palliative care. The overall aim of this project is to develop optimal implementation strategies for using quality indicators to improve the organization of palliative cancer and dementia care in Europe and to study factors influencing the effectiveness of the strategies. We will focus on the implementation process and concentrate the work packages on: the organization of palliative care, the development of a set of setting-specific implementation strategies including an interactive website and instruction by consultants, the evaluation of the use of selected strategies to improve the organization of palliative care and factors influencing the effectiveness of the implementation strategies. This information will be used to build a conceptual model that should be applicable across diverse healthcare settings and that allows rigorous assessment of the effectiveness of implementation strategies. Dissemination of the results will be enhanced by involving stakeholders, including two European networks related to the subject of this implementation process study.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Collaboration between a range of professionals and health care organisations is necessary for the ongoing care of the infirm and elderly. This project identified quality indicators (QIs) specifically to improve the care of cancer and dementia patients in Europe.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Palliative care focuses on relieving disease symptoms and preventing the suffering of patients. A multidisciplinary approach to patient care, this type of care relies on input from physicians, pharmacists, social workers, psychologists and other health sector professionals. Together they formulate care plans to relieve suffering in all areas of a patient's life.

The objective of the project 'Implementation of quality indicators in palliative care study' (http://impactpalliativecare.eu/ (IMPACT)) was to identify particular strategies and factors that make this care more effective. Project partners have examined several cases of palliative care organisations in Europe and identified a set of quality indicators derived from patients' feedback.

Team members also looked into specific barriers to and facilitators of the anticipated use of these indicators. They developed a web-based system to register feedback from the organisations' assessments.

The set of QIs developed will be published in a scientific paper in 2014. Five countries participated in the pilot test (Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom). The four types of settings used were hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and primary care facilities. In these settings, a consultant invited the professional team to assess the quality of their organisation with the help of the set of QIs. The team also chose goals for improvement. Based on quality improvement steps, the teams improved the organisation of their setting. Finally, the effects were measured with the QI set.

At the end of this project, other countries will be able to use the QIs. The final outcome will be an instruction manual that will include how to use QIs, how to start improvement projects, and strategies for QI implementation. Data will continue to be collected for QI adjustments and to create a larger data set. Enabling additional comparisons, case-mix adjustments and further studies on this rich material, the data will contribute to an innovative, multi-professional, holistic health care system in Europe.
