PaTz Palliative Homecare

Amsterdam

Services Offered

Inspired by the Gold Standards Framework from the UK, this is a grassroots initiative in Amsterdam started in 2010: the PaTz project. Four groups of general practitioners and community nurses were formed and followed in a pilot study. Evidence from this pilot study indicated that the participants were very positive about working together in a PaTz group.

They stated that their cooperation was improved and that they were making more advanced care plans. Moreover, there were positive effects on patient level, such as a decrease in hospital admissions in the last month of life.

Currently, there are over 160 PaTz groups, spread out over the Netherlands.
