Dear ECPC Members,

Palliative care focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, physical stress, and mental stress of a serious illness. It is a fundamental component of the cancer patient's journey, but it is often neglected.

Within the framework of the European Commission's Expert Group on Cancer Control asked ECPC to comment on a series of documents to start working on a new initiative on palliative care at the European level. We strongly believe that this is a perfect chance for all our ECPC Members working on palliative care to share their opinion and input directly on the decision making process in Brussels.

If you are interested, please contact ECPC Public Affairs Coordinator Francesco Florindi (email: francesco.florindi@ecpc.org). He will provide you all the information needed.

The deadline for the submission of the comments is Friday 23rd December.
