1. to develop research aimed to describe the unmet needs and their predictors in different contexts of Health Care System
2. to sensitize and train health care staff to the recognition and assessment of patients’ needs
3. to measure the effectiveness (e.g. on the quality of life of patients and on satisfaction with the received care) of a clinical practice that gives attention to the unmet needs
4. to sensitize health personnel to the recognition and care of their own needs
5. to support health politicians in allocating available resources in those areas where the need is of greater extent and more urgent.
