Dyadic Psychosocial Interventions for people with Advanced cancer and their Informal Caregivers (DIAdIC) is a transdisciplinary, cross-national research project evaluating the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of 2 psychosocial and educational interventions, aiming to inform European countries on which interventions generate the most favourable outcomes. The project will run from December 2018 until December 2023.
ECPC will lead Work Package 10 ‘Dissemination and communication’, which is responsible for a full dissemination, exploitation and communication of all project outreach activities, empowering patients and their families by ensuring new insights are effectively communicated, drafting a press release about the position paper with policy and awareness recommendations that is to be developed by the project, organising a virtual conference for patients, family caregivers and general public, and a final stakeholder event at the completion of the project. ECPC will also work with Work Package 4 'Development of web modules' to write implementation guidelines for the DIAdIC interventions and contribute to Work Package 9 'Process and implementation evaluation' by organising reflection groups to increase stakeholder involvement.
