Summary of "Characteristics of Care and Outcome Quality within the Specialized Ambulatory Palliative Care (SAPV): Analysis of Patient Characteristics and Indicators of Care of a Palliative Care Team."

The ambulatory specialized palliative care (SAPV) was implemented to enable patients with the need for end-of-life intensive care to die with accompanied professionality and in familiar surroundings. Studies on changes of patient characteristics as well as the contents of care within time are scarce. The aim of this study was the evaluation of care parameters and variations in time as well as a qualitative assessment of the dying process and the stress on the dependents.
