The solid facts : palliative care / edited by Elizabeth Davies and Irene J. Higginson
Davies, Elizabeth; Higginson, Irene J; World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2004 )
Abstract

Populations in European and other developed countries are ageing, and more people are now living with the effects of serious chronic illnesses towards the end of life. Meeting their needs presents a public health challenge. Traditionally, palliative care towards the end of life has been offered mostly to cancer patients, but must now be offered for a wider range of serious illnesses and integrated more broadly across health care services. This booklet is part of the WHO Regional Office for Europe's work to present evidence for health policy- and decision-makers in a clear and understandable form. It explains why health services should provide good quality palliative care for all people facing serious chronic illness. It provides evidence for the effectiveness of palliative care, shows how it can be improved, and explains the need to ensure full access. The booklet also explores the varied cultural and health care contexts in different countries, and reveals how to educate professionals and the public about these issues. A companion booklet entitled "Better palliative care for older people" considers this vulnerable group in more detail. Both booklets seek to broaden awareness, stimulate debate and promote action

Human resources and national health systems : shaping the agenda for action in the European Region, Berlin, Germany 22-23 May 2004
Workshop on Human Resources for Health (2004 : Berlin, Germany); World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2004 )
Abstract

This is a report of a Workshop organised by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, with the objectives of building the evidence base for Human Resources for Health (HRH) in Europe by identifying the key policy questions that policy makers face in HRH, agreeing upon an agenda for development of options, and undertaking further validation of the WHO HQ/HRH framework. The workshop allowed further exploration of the framework and validation for the European region; and, with the participation of policy makers, enabled the identification of the key HRH issues/policy questions for the region, and identification of initial priorities for building capacity and action. Three underlying principles and six priority areas for action were identified and agreed. The three principles were that approaches to HRH should be comprehensive, inclusive, and not risk averse. The six priority areas for action were: testing/ applying the WHO HRH framework; improving planning; monitoring migration; assessing the impact of regulation; supporting HRH networking and "filling" knowledge gaps; and HRH capacity building
