The Norwegian model for palliative medicine and care is organized in four centres of excellence in close connection with university hospitals. The centres consist of: a clinical division, department of palliative medicine and a second division, department of education and research. In Slovakia there could be three or four such centres. The hospital in Martin is a big regional hospital and it is also a university hospital. It is well developed with most of the medical specialities. There is neither palliative care department nor hospice in this region. Our vision is to found a centre of palliative medicine in Martin, there should be centre also in Bratislava or Kosice, consisting of clinical division and a division for education and research.
