About the project


Pal-Cycles refers to a “Flight Cycle” which involves the complete cycle of an airplane from take-off to touchdown. As an analogy, the Pal-Cycles intervention offers to people with advanced cancer and palliative care needs, a transitional palliative care programme from ‘take-off’ from the hospital towards ‘landing’ safely in homecare.

Pal-Cycles will result in a better access to transitional care for advanced cancer patients and families.

People with advanced cancer will have early and better access to supportive, palliative, survivorship, or end-of-life care services of higher quality and (cost) effectiveness.

Impact on higher quality and (cost)-effective services via research and service development (middle term).
