As part of the work on organizational standards in palliative care, the Standards Team formed by the Polish Society of Palliative Medicine, concerning home palliative care for adults, proposes to change the name to the Home Palliative Care Team. We also believe that a flexible system of visits to the patient’s home should be created, tailored to the individual needs of the patient and their caregivers. As part of the individualization of patient care, it is proposed, among others, to increase the frequency of services for which there is an increased demand, at the expense of those that may be less needed at a given moment.

The document presents an organizational chart, requirements regarding staff qualifications, the scope of provided services, procedures performed as part of home care, as well as conditions for providing equipment and visits to the patient’s home.
