During the implementation of the "Translating and Regenerating the Military Heritage in Matsu'' (戰地轉身．轉譯再生) project, a comprehensive partnership between NCKU and Matsu was developed. In November 2020, President Su Huey-Jen led NCKU's Executive Innovation Consensus Camp to Matsu. This is the first time since the founding of the university that nearly 60 executives have flown together to hold a consensus camp on an outlying island, fully demonstrating the high level of support and sincerity for this project. Lienchiang County Mayor Liu Cheng-Ying led the officials waiting for the flight, while NCKU arranged for Administrative Vice President Lin Minn-Tsong of NSTC to give a lecture on science and technology and Fu Chaoching,the Emeritus Professor of NCKU to give a cultural lecture. After seeing Matsu's unique landscape in person, they were able to deepen the integration of humanities and technology and build a consensus on a vision for higher education.
In 2021, they made the Matsu 90 Memorial Wine together, in 2022, they signed a memorandum of cooperation of the Matsu MicroCollege to break through the university's existing institutional framework with a new type of "microcollege" organization, linking Matsu's local energy with the interdisciplinary resources of higher education to create a small, mission-driven, project-driven, problem-oriented learning institute centered on the island. Through Taiwan's unique island discourse and practice, it will shape the global context of island multiculturalism and global sustainable development.
To develop a comprehensive partnership with Matsu, President Su Huey-Jen led NCKU's Executive Innovation Consensus Camp to Matsu in November,2020.
NCKU also won the first prize of the "Well-being Coexistence" award with the "Home Care project-宅善終~愛守護-優質的五全安寧居家照護". Associate Professor Lin Peng-Chan, Director of the Hospice Ward at NCKU Hospital, led the team. When the patient's recovery rate is low and the countdown to life begins, not only "cure" but also "care". The promotion of the project is to move the care spot from the hospital to the patient's home, and not to return to the hospital hospice ward unless necessary. The so-called "five holistic" means "whole person" patient-centered physical and spiritual care, "whole family" care for the patient, "whole process" grief relief for the bereaved family members, "whole team" combining various professions of the team to provide all-round care, and "whole community" cooperating with community clinics and home care centers to achieve mutual benefit. The hospice provides a hospice home for terminally ill patients to die at home, so that their families can be reunited in their last days of life, save medical expenses with limited medical resources, avoid ineffective medical treatment, and create a four-win situation for the patient's family, hospital, society, and the country.

In 1994, the hospice pioneer in Taiwan, Chao, C. S.(趙可式), started a hospice group at NCKU. After nearly 30 years, NCKU has formed the largest hospice army in Taiwan, lining up doctors, nurses, social workers, music therapists, chaplains and volunteers to provide innovative, comfortable and precise care regardless of the patient's illness or age, on call 24 hours a day, across multiple disciplines. With the aging of the society and the reputation of services, the number of hospice patients in NCKU has increased year after year, and the number of services quantity exceeded 9,000 in 2021; the number of people served came to 623, 25 times the national average. In other words, the percentage of hospice patients at home is as high as 81.8%, which is not only the highest in Taiwan, but also significantly ahead of the 40.2% in Europe and 30.7% in the United States.
According to Dr. Lin Peng-Chan(Left 2.), Director of the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care at NCKU, "Hospice is the provision of a higher standard of care."
Many people misunderstand that "hospice and palliative care" is the same as "giving up treatment. In fact, according to Dr. Lin Peng-Chan, Director of the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care at NCKU, "Hospice is the provision of a higher standard of care." Hospice care does not delay or speed up death, but rather provides the most comfortable and dignified path of care for patients, so that they can get through the last mile of their lives with ease. To do so, the hospice team must understand the patient's past, care for the present, and predict the future, relying on big data. A database of more than 8,000 hospice patients from 2005 to 2020 has been assembled at NCKU, allowing for the development of treatment strategies at different stages. Dr. Lin Peng-Chan said that physical care is definitely a strength of the medical staff, but when medication is no longer effective, it is important to prioritize comfort care such as oil massage, comfortable hair washing and lymphedema care.
