Digitalising palliative cancer care

Upholding equitable patient services

Thursday, 26 September 2024 | 16:15-17:30 | Conference Centre

Organised by MSD

According to the European Association for Palliative Care, each year, an estimated 4.4 million people in the WHO European Region need palliative care. This panel discussion brings forth the critical issue of equity in palliative cancer care from both patient and caregiver perspectives, especially amidst growing digitalisation of these services since the pandemic.

Approaching the issue from the viewpoints of access to, and upholding good quality of care services, the session emphasises the importance of implementing digital care systems that are designed to strengthen the patient voice, build trust, reduce inequality, and provide support towards health literacy and awareness, psycho-social well-being, and treatment protocols; this enables positive impacts across the stakeholder ecosystem, including healthcare professionals and both formal and informal carers.  

Join us for a conversation on research learnings, country-level examples, and actionable best practices and considerations to inform future regional policies.
