Why it matters
INSPIRE overall objective is to test the clinical and cost effectiveness of an integrated short-term palliative rehabilitation intervention to improve function and quality of life in people affected by incurable cancer and reduce the burden of care for their families. This person-centred trial, if positive, could result in a scalable and equitable intervention that reduces symptom burden and disability and increases social participation, leading to better quality of life.
What ECPC does
ECPC will play a broad role in this project, participating in the development of the interventions and coordination of the main trial. It will evaluate the equity and inclusiveness in the accessibility during the process and implementation of the study. It will also contribute to synthesize the different international approaches to palliative care and create a consensus guideline and protocol in an international framework. Together with EAPC will ensure the dissemination and exploitation of the study.
This project is funded by the European Union under Grant Agreement No 101057043.
