Quality of Life in cancer care: do we care enough?
In cancer care, quality of life is a very important dimension for patients. They have to live with cancer and must learn to manage its disease effects, treatment side effects, psychological stress-induced and other elements that strongly impact their quality of life.
Today, a comprehensive assessment and integration of quality of life into the cancer patient care pathway is still insufficient due to lack of time, money and awareness from several stakeholders. In addition, there is also the difficulty to define, measure and monitor quality of life.
On Tuesday, November 24, from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM (CEST), the online event « Webinnov’ by Alcimed – Quality of Life in cancer care: do we care enough? » will be hosted on Zoom.
This webinar aims at gathering different stakeholders from the pharmaceutical industry, an international patients’ association and a post-mastectomy service provider for women. The spotlight will be put on patients and the speakers will discuss the way needs are tackled today and how they will be in the future. Moreover, Dr. Charis GIRVALAKI, EU Affairs Manager at ECPC will deliver an insightful presentation!
