The Center for Palliative Care and Supportive Care opened in 2019 with the aim of contributing to the implementation of general palliative care in all departments of the Geneva University Hospitals. Built with the aim of supporting care professionals in the management of patients with palliative trajectories and enhancing their professional skills, depending on their specialisation, the centre has laid out recommendations for the palliative management of people with a life-limiting disease. The results of the centre’s actions, carried out in collaboration with these professionals, are encouraging and show a growing use of the recommended tools for the evaluation and management of patients in general palliative care.
