At Museum of Natural Sciences, Brussels
A policy conference with lively debate led by key stakeholders in palliative and long-term care in Europe: towards evidence-based policy and practice.
The delivery of high quality long-term care for people with life-limiting illnesses is a major EU policy challenge and is also recognized within the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. Such care should be person-centred and focused on the quality of life. Results from two large EU funded projects are presented in this conference aiming to inform policy and decision-makers about the latest research on the importance and added value of palliative care in an age-friendly European Union. Presentations are provided by key researchers from the EU and US.
While palliative care has traditionally been oriented towards terminal cancer care, it also has huge potential if further integrated into the whole health care system and additionally has potential cost-saving effects.
National and international policy and decision-makers; civil servants; academics and researchers; health networks; representatives from national health services and from international bodies concerned with health ie EU; and many more…
With the support of AGE Platform Europe, EAPC, Interdem and EUGMS and of the IMPACT and EUROIMPACT projects.
