Palliative Care in Denmark: Bridging the Health Sector Gap

Palliative trajectories are extremely vulnerable – especially when it comes to co-operation across sector borders.  But how does it look from patients’, relatives’ and professionals’ perspectives? In Denmark, GPs play an important role in these trajectories, but what do we know about their effort and attitudes? How do we go ahead from here?
