The present tendency in Europe is to promote the creation of mobile support teams in Palliative care instead of residential palliative care units. Through the experience of the mobile support teams who are confronted with the full range of convictions held by persons in a hospital setting, the concept of Palliative Care/Terminal Care has been reinforced/strenghened/enhanced by the Continuous Care approach, which tends to articulate curative and palliative procedures rather than setting one form of therapy against the other.
The project is directed towards lnter-and Pluri-disciplinary research among clinicians (responsible for mobile support teams), scientific experts (university institutes) and external consultants The aim is to clarify pedagogic training strategies in communication and ethics mediation in order to promote the integration of Continuous care for chronically ill patients in hospitals.
