TASKS:

Palliative and hospice care is a comprehensive, holistic care for patients who suffer from incurable progressive diseases resistant to causal treatment. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the somatic symptoms, pain, mental stress, spiritual and social suffering.

 

In accordance with the order of the National Health Fund palliative and hospice care can be provided to patients suffering from the following diseases:

 

  • cancer
  • CNS infections caused by lentiviruses
  • primary systemic atrophies of the CNS (e.g. SLA)
  • end-stage cardiomyopathy
  • advanced respiratory failure
  • pressure ulcers

 

Palliative and hospice care includes supporting the patient’s family in times of disease, pain, grief and bereavement.

A palliative care team within the DCO in Wrocław was established in 1994. It functions as the Palliative Outpatient Clinic and Home Hospice.

Patients can contact the Clinic in person or by a family member.

In order to receive palliative care the patient needs to provide a referral from the health insurance doctor – stating the exact diagnosis and palliative care recommendation, medical records, identity card and a certificate of insurance.
The final decision on the provision of the palliative and hospice care is made by the physician of the Outpatient Clinic and Hospice.

The patient must give consent for palliative care.

Palliative Outpatient Clinic and Home Hospice within DCO provides outpatient and home care. Inpatient care is not available.

Palliative and hospice care at the patient’s home is provided in cooperation with the primary care physician and primary care nurse.
