Last Year of Life Study Cologne II: Modelling and evaluation of a minimally invasive bilateral intervention to strengthen patient-centred care in hospitals
LYOL-C-II is a follow-up project to the study “Last year of life in Cologne – LYOL-C”. LYOL-C II aims to make hospital healthcare more patient-centred in order to increase the long-term benefit (“value”) for patients in their last year of life. For this purpose, minimally invasive interventions are tested on specific wards and evaluated within the course of a staff survey and prospective patient study, which is intended to help improve care for this particularly vulnerable group of patients and their relatives.
Duration of the project: 05/2020 – 04/2023
Project funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research
