The aim of the project is to develop a mobile application that would support the administration and coordination of volunteer work involved in working with palliative care, including hospice patients with special needs, which often also represent groups of vulnerable societies.

As the volunteer movement grows in popularity, more and more people become volunteers, which in turn significantly ups the importance of the volunteer coordinator role and their workload. As the workload grows, it is much harder to adequately supervise the volunteers and their work and the capacity for the effectiveness of volunteer work is lowered, and this includes activities which would popularize volunteer work to a wider portion of society, as well as work with society, educating the society of the topic, as well as breaking the stigma of the topics of hospice care and the end of life. In order to ensure optimal support for palliative care and hospice patient care, an effective IT solution (mobile application) is needed for planning, organising and accounting of available volunteer resources, thereby ensuring the availability of adequate qualifications for volunteers in line with the needs of the patient and the specific nature of the care to be provided.
