The InAdvance project developed a new model of palliative care based on early integration and personalised pathways addressed specifically to older people with complex chronic conditions. 


Policy recommendations: Policy recommendations and guidelines for the implementation of evidence-based Palliative Care. The recommendations are available as a 2-pager InAdvance Policy recommendations (short version) and in its full version, InAdvance Policy recommendations (long version) covering: 

  • Palliative care is neither available nor accessible for all 
  • Education and public awareness about Palliative Care is lacking 
  • Non-person-centred care leads to late identification of needs 
  • Fragmentation and discontinuity of care 
  • Cost-effectiveness of early admission to Palliative Care 
  • Diverse legal contexts

Website to foster care at home (in Spanish only): InAdvance created an open space to foster care skills at home.
