Regionale Hospiz- und Palliativnetze: Starke Stricke mit Löchern? Welche Optionen sollte der Koalitionsvertrag bieten?
Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
regionale Palliativ- und Hospiznetzwerke sehen sich sowohl national sowie international großen Herausforderungen gegenüber. Sie bewegen sich innerhalb vieler Spannungsfelder und Ambivalenzen:
• Von einem wettbewerbsbasierten Gesundheitswesen in Deutschland zu einer strukturierten Kooperation miteinander zu gelangen, um die Patientenversorgung und Begleitung zu verbessern.• Einerseits die individuellen Bedürfnisse von betroffenen Menschen und ihrer Zugehörigen zu verstehen und ernst zu nehmen, andererseits die Tendenz zur Standardisierung von Abläufen, Strukturen und Behandlungen zu suchen, um Qualität zu sichern.• Mangel an Pflegekräften und medizinischem Fachpersonal erhöht in allen Bereichen den Druck und andererseits besteht der Wille und die Notwendigkeit, Schnittstellenmanagement zwischen den Sektoren und Organisationen zu verbessern.• Multiprofessionelle Teams haben sich in der Palliativversorgung häufig schon etabliert. Gleichzeitig ist der Wunsch vorhanden, die Kooperation mit dem Ehrenamt nicht zu vernachlässigen. Diese Kooperation muss gepflegt und unbedingt immer neu in den Blick genommen werden.
Die Charta für Schwerstkranke und Sterbende hat die notwendige Etablierung regionaler Netzwerke eingefordert und der Koalitionsvertrag will die Finanzierung der Koordination von regionalen Netzwerken prüfen. Dabei möchten wir in Aachen mit Politik, Wissenschaft und Akteuren der palliativen und hospizlichen Arbeit, Ehrenamt, Krankenkassen, Verbänden und Seelsorge über diese Spannungsfelder ins Gespräch kommen. Unter anderem werden wir im Gespräch sein mit Franz Müntefering, ehemaliger Kanzlerkandidat der SPD, Ulla Schmidt MdB, Bundesgesundheitsministerin a. D., Prof. Dr. Helen Kohlen, Pflegewissenschaftlerin und Expertin für politische Ethik in palliativen und hospizlichen Fragen, Vallendar, Prof. Hugo Mennemann, Experte für die Erforschung von Erfolgsfaktoren und Hürden in multiprofessionellen Netzwerken und Waldemar Radtke, AOK Rheinland/Hamburg – Regionaldirektion Städteregion Aachen – Kreis Düren.
Wir freuen uns mit Ihnen auf einen spannenden Austausch über eigene und nationale Grenzen hinweg!
Mit herzlichen Grüßen,
Veronika Schönhofer-Nellessen und Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Roman Rolke

The World Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases just took place from April 19 to April 22, 2018 in the beautiful city of Krakow, Poland.
This 18th Edition of the WCO-IOF-ESCEO Congress was, once again, a very huge success: • 3965 delegates took part in the largest event in the field of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, frailty and sarcopenia. • The Scientific Advisory Committee, co-chaired by Professor René Rizzoli and Professor Cyrus Cooper, had an extremely difficult task, to select oral presentations, among 1513 submitted abstracts of the highest quality. • 565 awards were distributed during the Congress.
For the 19th Edition which will take place in Paris, France from April 4 to April 7, 2019, the members of the Committee of Scientific Advisors of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO) are developing a very exciting Congress’ scientific programme that will bring together the world’s best in the field of musculoskeletal health and disease.
We really hope to welcome you in Paris, France and that this Congress will move the field one step forward on all fronts; from new understanding of bone metabolism and pathology, to new strategies and options in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
The city of Paris offers a most convenient and pleasant setting for international congresses. We hope that you will also take the opportunity to explore its many attractions!
