Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskning


Over the past decade there has been a growing awareness of the relationship between rehabilitation and palliative care. The Danish National Board of Health recommend further coordination and integration of Rehabilitation and Palliative care.. Some of the reasons for this recommendation is the increasing awareness that: 1/R and PC share some common goals
2/Patients and relatives facing life-threatening disease can be in need of R and PC
3/R and PC provide patients different resources for understanding and living with life-threatening illness and may complement each other and 4/R and PC health professionals can learn from each other.
One of the challenges raised by hospices in the turn towards rehabilitation in palliative care is the understanding and awareness of how to address issues related to forthcoming death.
This paper discusses how occupational therapist meet the challenges of integrating palliation and rehabilitation and contribute to activity and participation for people in need of such services.
