I am currently a post-doc researcher (50%) in the KUPA project. The KUPA project implements and evaluates a knowledge-based model of palliative care in nursing homes. The educational model consists of five themed meetings for staff (nurse-assistants, registered nurses, occupational therapeuts, physiotherapeuts, unit managers and medical doctors). The implementation is evaluated based on a theoretical framework that specifies a number of known explanatory factors (barriers and facilitating factors) for successful implementation. The project is expected to contribute to a worthy last days of life with improved quality of life and greater involvement for the older person and their next of kins. By evaluating a education model, the project will contribute to the development of unique knowledge of how palliative care can be used in the care of the most frail elderly in nursing homes.
