Highlights or Results or Key Findings

Design:

The overall design is action research, where researchers together with health professionals, patients, and relatives have developed Virtuel4M. The study has a qualitatively oriented study design. Data comes from observational studies, single interviews, focus interviews, and registration forms.

Innovation:

1. Cross-sectoral workshops, where staff participating in the project are informed and taught in the implementation of cross-sectoral Virtual4M.

2. Virtual4M is coordinated and planned together with the patient and relatives

• Coordination and planning

• Agreements for possible follow up.

Conclusions

Result: 10 Virtuel4M will be conducted in August/September 2021. Presentation of the 10 Virtual4M conclusion at the conference
