The overall aim of the IMPACT project was to develop optimal improvement strategies to improve the organization of palliative cancer and dementia care in Europe and to study factors influencing the
effectiveness of the strategies.
The IMPACT project started on February 1, 2011 and ended on February 1, 2015. A video, a manual and two questionnaires based on the knowledge derived from the project have been developed and can be
used by professionals, researchers and palliative care settings (hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and primary care services) for training and supporting quality improvement activities.
The materials, available on this website, can be used to assess the organisation of palliative care services by using specific quality indicators. Final aim is to enhance the quality of care in the
specific areas that the quality indicators had shown to be in need of improvement.
