Abstract

We discuss a simulation model describing paediatric palliative assistance network behaviour and its use by patients. The model is absolutely general, but has been tested on Veneto Region (Italy), currently equipped with a network including paediatric hospital departments, a paediatric hospice and home integrated assistance. Different assistance politics were examined. As expected, politics increasing hospice and home integrated assistance for palliative patients, improve orderly patients assistance in hospitals and permit a remarkably reduced total cost.
