Time distribution of services in palliative care in Switzerland - an evaluation study in hospital, hospice and Spitex

At a glance



This two-phase project aims to present and compare the services provided in palliative care. 


In phase one, the activities in palliative care are collected based on existing research work by the applicants and process analysis. This data will be adapted for the settings of the research work (hospital, hospice, Spitex) and adapted for implementing a multi-moment assessment (MMA).

In phase two, the MMA is carried out by the nurses in the settings by documenting their activities at randomised intervals. With the MMA, the sample with a pre-determined number of observations can be used to infer the population's variation and percentage of activity.
