A group of palliative care specialists launched the SIOP Europe Paediatric Palliative Care Working Group. The group’s aims are to elevate the current standards of care of children with cancer in Europe, by fostering the early integration of oncology and palliative care through the organization of educational activities, the development of pan-European guidelines, the inclusion of measures of quality of life in clinical research protocols and collaboration with other organisations of interest.
The Working Group was officially launched during the SIOPE Annual Meeting, during a session in which the new group’s aims and initial project proposals were introduced. Following on from this, there was a presentation on “Advance Care Planning” and finally a round of discussions among the speakers and attendees.
