ECPC position on pain & cancer: Statement & Presentation by Mihaela Militaru
Mihaela Militaru – European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC), Belgium
Cancer supportive care in most countries is not included in standard cancer care and is often delivered by patient organisations. Almost all ECPC members offer pshycho-social support services to patients and families. ECPC believes that every citizen must have access to pain relief and palliative care to ensure that each day is lived as fully as possible until the very end.
