The focus of this experience exchange in Aachen was on the practical issues of palliative care. Therefore, the guests from Malta spent a day in the Iterbach Hospice in Walheim (Hospiz am Iterbach) and in the oldest German stationary hospice, Hospiz Haus Hörn in Aachen. With the help of Johannes Wüller, the medical director of the ambulant palliative care service in Aachen (Home Care Städteregion Aachen gemeinnützige GmbH), the ambulatory care of patients in their domestic environment could be followed by the Maltese delegation. They also attended stationary care of palliative patients and the counselling service of the Department of Palliative Medicine at the University Hospital Aachen.
