Healthy hospital

The University Hospital in Motol was one of the first hospitals in the Czech Republic to join the international program in 2003 Healthy hospital - Health Promoting Hospitals. In practice, this means that hospitals implement WHO declared health promotion principles.

Five health promotion standards have been developed within the program, focusing on patient needs assessment, patient information, interdisciplinary collaboration and continuity of care, healthy environment support, and management. Effectiveness and compliance with standards are assessed on the basis of measurable criteria in the form of self-assessment. The outputs of the self-assessment are used to determine corrective measures. An integral part is also the monitoring of the impact of corrective measures (eg: increasing the availability of information and educational materials will strengthen the participation of patients in promoting their own health; the resulting effect will be found in the patient satisfaction survey).

The Healthy Hospital program includes complex health promotion issues, and projects are targeted at both patients and healthcare professionals.

The following projects continue this year:
