Research & Knowledge on Palliative Care Group
The Palliative Care teams of the Catalan Institute of Oncology have been pioneers in its comprehensive and multidimensional care model. Along with their vocation, they have always been characterized by their research interest and their teaching work. In recent years, there have been several changes in cancer epidemiology; moreover, the emergence of new treatments has modified cancer survival. In the clinical field of palliative care, this fact has meant a change in action with earlier interventions, new treatments, and more complex situations, including the psychological and social dimensions. All these situations are causing new models of care and teaching challenges. New questions and needs have to be answered. With this premise, the Research and Knowledge Group in PC has been created.
