Table 1 The three basic principles of PaTz

From: Variation in the implementation of PaTz: a method to improve palliative care in general practice - a prospective observational study

(1) In a PaTz-group, local GPs and DNs meet at least six times per year to identify and discuss their patients with a life-threatening illness;
(2) PaTz-meetings are supervised by a specialist palliative care professional;
(3) PaTz-groups use a palliative care register on which all patients with a limited life expectancy are listed.
