Sometimes it seems to be difficult to identify patients with palliative care needs in acute or long term care. SPICT, as a helpful tool to recognise people with these needs, may also provide objective arguments for providing Palliative Care in these settings.

We are collaborating with colleagues in Germany and the UK to develop and promote SPICT-DE™ (Deutsch).

Our government-institute “Österreichisches Bundesinstitut für Gesundheitswesen” (GÖG) is preparing to publish guidelines for health care professionals about Palliative Care. One important topic is how to recognise Palliative Care needs in patients in primary health care. SPICT-DE should be recommended in these nationwide government-guidelines.
