Abstract

The goal of this study was to investigate why GPs have little or no involvement in the medical process relating to any of their patients when they are admitted to a palliative care unit (PCU) and what solutions they suggest. The study took the form of a descriptive pilot study based on a short questionnaire. It emerged that GPs felt their involvement was influenced by their job description, by practical factors (time investment, distance betweenpractice and PCU, remuneration, referral) and personal issues (e.g. dealing with dying). It is concluded that GPs need education in palliative/supportive care and approved remuneration as well as knowledge about their task in the PCU.
