2. Activities against a change to the worse for children with rheumatic diseases because of a nwe social system

Within the beginning of 2004 we had an important change in our social system as well for inpatient as outpatient.

In community with this change are a lot of cuts of the medical care.

Therefore we had/have to fight against a change for the worse for children with rheumatic diseases.

Up date Rheumatic League Germany, Kosice/Slovakia 09-2004

slide11

A very important change are the DRGs (diagnostic related groups).

Hospitals will be paid a specific, predetermined amount for each

Patient.

The amount which will be paid depends primarily on the diagnosis into which the patientis classified.

This system (coming from Australia) can leed to an insuffcient care of children with rheumatic diseases, because the amount for children is the same as for adults but the costs are higher.

3. Participation in P.A.I.N workshop

(Pain Associates‘ International Network)

The fifth international P.A.I.N. Workshop (Pain Associates’ International Network) took place from the 9th to 12th May 2004 in Valencia, Spain.

It was organised in co-operation with the „Sociedad Española del Dolor“ (SED).

Participants were European physicians, health care professionals with different specialisations, quality managers, pain patients and media.

slide13

A main objective of P.A.I.N is to establish and consolidate an international network of persons being involved in the treatment of pain and palliative care as e.g.

professionals, patients, healthcare officials, pain organisations and media.

The general aim of the workshop in Valencia was to elaborate a practical, internationally valid and outcome-oriented management concept regarding age-related pain in children and the elderly, which can be used for the improvement of pain management processes in clinical practice.

slide14

The results of P.A.I.N. 5 will be published and should motivate professionals and patients to develop their own improvement measures by using the described techniques.

Everybody, who is interested can look at

www.pain-workshop.com

were you can find the first draft in discussion.

4. Ten years with rehabilitation programmes, especially for children with rheumatic diseases

In Germany we created a special rehabilitation for schoolmates with rheumatic dieseases

They can participate in the programme every year

for three weeks during school holidays.

They are accompanied by a paediatric rheumatologist and health care professionals specialised for rh. d.

They also get the special education programme (see later)

And they have a lot of fun!

The rehabilitation is organized by the German Rheumatic League of Brandenburg

5. Workshop for spokeswomen and spokesmen

Every year there is a meeting of parents speakers

One speaker from every county as well as physicians, psychologists and/or socialworkers from the paediatric rheumatism centers come together.

One year parents and young people with rheumatism are participating together the other year parents and young people are seperated.

In november 2003 parents and social workers met for the

topic: Counselling and supervising

These meetings are also very important in order change experience of our work within the social league.
