In the perspective of integration with the social-assistance sphere, the project dedicates a pilot action to cross-border services and interventions for the inclusion of vulnerable groups in the population.

1. CUP: cross border health services;

2. Mental health: publication of the call for projects “individual health budget”, cross-border agreement and training course for workers who are not responsible for mental health issues; 

3. Autism: training course on the ESDM method, medical protocol for the treatment of autistic children and adaptation of rooms in Gorizia for the operation of integrated teams;

4. Normal pregnancy: cross-border agreement;

5. Social inclusion: training event, three thematic workshops and start of work for the construction of an info-point in Gorizia.

CUP

The activity aims to overcome administrative and operational obstacles, in order to give to the citizens of the EGTS area the possibility to book and use cross-border health services from both parts of the border, regardless of the state of origin, thus putting into practice the principle of the free movement of patients from the EU Directive 2011/24. The healthcare offerings of the two territories, the booking systems and the supplying system of Italian and Slovenian healthcare services were analyzed, in order to find administrative and legal solutions that would allow the creation of a network of cross-border healthcare services. All activities are carried out in close collaboration with the Slovenian Ministry of Health and with the Central Health Administration, Social Policies and Disabilities Department of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, and with the entities that deal with the technical, administrative and financial aspects of booking and providing health services: Insiel, the Slovenian National Institute for Public Health NIJZ (Nacionalni inštitut za javno zdravje Republike Slovenije) and the Slovenian Institute for Health Insurance ZZZS (Zavod za zdravstveno zavarovanje Republike Slovenije). 

The list of health services that will be provided in the territory of the EGTC GO has been approved and the number of places reserved for the pilot action has been identified on a weekly basis. 

An agreement was reached on how to implement the cross-border booking system. 

On the basis of the indications provided by the analysis and taking into account the technical characteristics of the two Italian and Slovenian IT systems, a cross-border group of computer scientists is developing a single joint booking system, which will allow citizens of the EGTC GO area to book and use the services of both states. 

MENTAL HEALTH

Thanks to the project, a joint Italian-Slovenian team was created with the task of drawing up common guidelines for taking care of patients between 18 and 35 years of age with mental health problems. The guidelines describe the actions that need to be carried out in the event of an acute situation and provide for the socio-professional reintegration of young people with mental health disorders. 

The first project activity consists of an analysis of the differences and synergies of the methods of treatment of people with mental health problems in Italy and Slovenia. The aim was to understand if and how it is possible to activate a joint service for the treatment of Italian and Slovenian patients. The cross-border team developed a joint model capable of increasing the quality and accessibility of cross-border services. 

The model requires that the multidisciplinary team carries out the following activities: 

Information and prevention activities. Promotion of informative meetings with other local figures (health district, schools, general medicine doctors, social services). Carried out on 11/12/2018. 

Community intervention in the crisis. The joint team will define a crisis management protocol which will make it possible the use of the geographically closer reception structures (Mental Health Centers), , as an alternative to normal hospitalization practices active in Slovenia; 

• Socio-professional reintegration. According to the guidelines developed by the mixed team, personalized rehabilitation projects will be activated, aiming at the re-acquisition of social skills/job capacity by the patients. This will be achieved thanks to a personalized rehabilitation health budget, tool that is widespread in Italy, but which an absolute novelty for Slovenia. In February 2019, Slovenian members of the cross-border team participated in a training session on use of the health budget. 

In September and October, the training course for the joint medical team on community mental health practices, deinstitutionalization courses and individual rehabilitation courses took place.

AUTISM

The project aims to introduce the early diagnosis (as early as 18 months of age) of the autism spectrum disorder. International studies continue to confirm that early treatment can significantly improve communication, relational, cognitive and adaptive skills. One of the most important objectives is to raise awareness of the importance of early diagnosis of primary care pediatricians as well as families and other operators who, for various reasons, use being in contact with children. 

A working group of experts was set up to draft a joint medical. The protocol plans the use, already in very young children, of the M-CHAT, one of the most internationally advanced tools for the diagnosis of the autism spectrum disorders. For the treatment it recommends the use of the ESDM method, which is currently the most effective in babies from 18 months onwards. For this end, the joint cross-border medical team took part in the ESDM course, taught by one of the most accredited American experts in this field at an international level. At the end of the course, experts will obtain a license to treat children with autistic spectrum disorder through this method. 

At the Basaglia Park in Gorizia, spaces have been redecorated for the joint medical team to use during the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders from both the two states, through the ESDM method. Didactic material was purchased for the application of the ESDM method. The works were completed in July 2019. The new spaces were inaugurated on 21.11.2019

PHYSOLOGICAL PREGNANCY

Thanks to the project, pregnant women in the territory of the three municipalities will be able to benefit from pre and postpartum services, provided by a cross-border group of obstetricians and gynecologists who will take into account the best European practices. Currently these services are not present in Slovenian or Italian territory, as they represent an innovative method in today's obstetric practice. 

The first project activity analyses differences and synergies of the treatment methods for pregnant women in Italy and Slovenia. A transnational working group was established, who has developed a joint treatment model for normal pregnancy, which provides for the innovative services that will be provided by the joint cross-border medical. 

At the end of 2018, the cross-border agreement was signed for the adoption of the model, which is based on the excellences of the two territories, but above all takes into account the models adopted in the three most advanced European centers in the treatment of physiological pregnancy in Holland, Denmark, England , which the working group had the opportunity to visit between May and June 2018. 

In April 2019, the working group identified the activities that will be jointly provided. Information materials have been prepared to inform women about the cross-border services offered. Services include: Gymnastics for pregnant women, Aquatic courses in pregnancy, Aquatic courses for newborns and Meetings for Support groups

On 12.12.2019 the agreement was signed between Splošna bolnišnica "Dr. Franca Derganca" Nova Gorica and the Healthcare Agency n. 2 "Bassa Friulana-Isontina" for carrying out the swimming pool activities foreseen in the action of physiological pregnancy. 

In December 2019 the first scheduled activity started - Meetings with pregnant women.

The project plans the construction of new infrastructures where the activities of the cross-border multidisciplinary mixed team will be carried out. At the Basaglia Park spaces will be renovated to house the "Birth Path" center for pre-birth activities. The final project has been prepared and is currently being approved. At the Šempeter Hospital, a space has been identified within the maternity ward that will be used as a space for physiological delivery. An external technician was entrusted with the task of supporting the RUP for the preparation of the competition, for the assignment of the project and subsequently for the execution of the works.

SOCIAL INCLUSION 

The action, which takes place in collaboration with the three founding municipalities of the EGTC GO, aims to create a network of cross-border social services for the population of the EGTC GO area, in particular for the weaker groups. The result of the action will be a cross-border protocol, which will provide for the joint supply of social services, involving all the managing bodies of social services and private associations. Three information points will be created where citizens will be able to obtain information on the possibility of providing social services and on the type of cross-border services.  

A permanent cross-border working group has been set up consisting of staff from the three municipalities, which will deal with the construction of a network of social services that require joint assistance.  

Training and in-depth moments dedicated to the social services operators of the three cities were organized. The first training session was organized on May 13, 2019 in Nova Gorica followed by various thematic tables in June and September on the themes of "Seniors and disabilities", "Social unease and poverty" and "Minors and families". 

Three information points will be created in the three municipalities, where citizens will be able to receive information on existing services throughout the area and how they can use them. By creating a cross-border social network, Italian and Slovenian citizens will be able to use the services provided by all three municipalities. In Nova Gorica, the information point will be hosted at the Skupnostni center, which will be affected by important infrastructural works thanks to additional funds from the Municipality of Nova Gorica, which intends to carry out important interventions to adapt the building. The call was published in December 2019. 

In Gorizia the infopoint was created on the ground floor of the Multipurpose Center of Gorizia. The works ended in October 2019 and the spaces were inaugurated on 18.12.2019.
