The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family. Palliative care is provided by a specially trained team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists who work together with a patient's medical clinicians to provide an additional layer of support. Instead of focusing on the patient's prognosis, palliative care focuses on their needs. It can be administered alongside curative care at any age or stage of a serious illness. In Europe, the growth of the palliative market will be aided by increased research and development. In the near future, new revenue streams in the European palliative care market will be stimulated by the adoption of a variety of models with interdisciplinary teams.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

In the UK, the National Health Service (NHS) is the primary means of palliative care, and it is governed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which is in charge of observing, regulating, and inspecting social and medical care in England. All hospices, hospitals, and home-based care services must adhere to a set of Essential Standards of Quality and Safety that have been established by the CQC. The management of pain and other symptoms, continuity of care, and patient dignity and respect are only a few of the topics covered by these standards. In order to handle potential hazards and guarantee the security of patients, employees, and visitors, providers are also required to have strong policies and processes in place.

The NHS also has a number of policies and guidelines, including the End of Life Care Strategy and the Quality Responsibilities for End of Life Care, to facilitate the delivery of high-quality palliative care in addition to these legal requirements. These materials provide guidance on the essential components of high-quality care, including evaluation, symptom management, and care planning, as well as the NHS's expectations for the delivery of palliative care.

Reimbursement Scenario

The National Health Service (NHS) is in charge of reimbursing healthcare professionals in the UK for the palliative care services they render. The NHS developed reimbursement guidelines for the UK palliative care market, and they are intended to guarantee that providers are fairly reimbursed for the services they render while simultaneously advancing cost-effectiveness and quality of care.

The NHS pays providers for palliative care treatments using a variety of payment methods, such as block contracts, capitation, and fee-for-service. Block contracts give a provider a certain sum of money for a set amount of time, whereas capitation gives money based on the number of patients cared for. Providers are paid according to the quantity and kind of services they deliver in a fee-for-service approach.
