Palliative Care Systems – International Comparison of the Czech Republic and Ireland – Lessons Drawing
Lejsal Matěj, Krejčí Jiří
Hospice and palliative care in the Czech Republic has been significantly practice-oriented from the very beginning. Gradually, the professional specialisation of physicians and the professional education of general nurses was added. The growing awareness and interest of the professional and lay public, including political representation, brings the need to embed palliative care in the system of individual branches of social policy as a fully-fledged part of this system. The aim here of comparing strategic documents and processes in the field of palliative care in the Czech Republic and Ireland through an overview study is to contribute to the ‘lessons drawing’ for shaping the further development of palliative care in the Czech Republic.
