Project summary:

Chronic disease management is a challenge for the future of health systems everywhere not only in Slovenia. The Comprehensive Partner Care (CPC)+ project partners intend to tackle this problem at the primary care level. We plan to upgrade an innovative and already established model of comprehensive patient care with new clinical paths and strict quality based process evaluation based on Donor partner’s contribution. The project focuses on early disease detection and improved patient care, especially for patients at risk of chronic non-communicable diseases, elderly, chronically ill patients, and those with poor access to healthcare. This will be achieved with an up-to-date approach: cooperation between the model general practice team (general practitioner, licenced and registered nurse) and a home care nurse according to predefined screening rules and clinical paths supported by systematic assessment of quality and safety for patients and medical staff. Professional personnel (50 family medical residents, 50 home care nurses and 35 teams) will be trained in the framework of 18 modules, according to the new model, which will be also realized in practice. The donor partner, DNV, is involved in all project phases.
