10th anniversary of ESMO Designated Centres program to improve palliative care services
Date:9/20/2013

Lugano, Switzerland, 20 September 2014 -- This year marks the 10th anniversary of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Designated Centres of Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care programme. The addition of four new countries from across the globe in 2013 highlights the growing importance of palliative care in cancer treatment worldwide. ESMO will announce the new and reaccredited centres during the 17th ECCO 38th ESMO 32nd ESTRO European Cancer Congress (ECC2013), 27 September1 October in Amsterdam, the Netherlands .

Nathan Cherny, Chair of the ESMO Palliative Care Working Group, said: "The ESMO designated centre programme to promote the development of integrated oncology and palliative care services for cancer patients has proven to be the most successful initiative of its kind. With over 160 designated centres worldwide the ESMO initiative has redefined the standard of care expected of modern oncology programmes."

The ESMO Designated Centres of Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care programme began in 2003 and recognises cancer centres that achieve a high standard of integration of medical oncology and palliative care. The accolade is valid for three years and centres can reapply.

This year saw the largest ever number of new applications with centres now recognized in countries previously unrepresented such as Korea, Norway, Russia and the Sultanate of Oman. Furthermore, countries with a large number of designated centres, such as Italy and Germany/Austria are benefitting from the organized efforts of the cohort of centres to promote the development of integrated oncology and palliative care in their own counties and beyond.

During the past 10 years this prestigious programme has been enormously popular, with increasing numbers of centres striving to meet the high standards required for designation; there are now 161 designated centres in total.

In 2013 there were
