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

//www.esmo.org/Patients/2013-ESMO-Designated-Centres">37 successful new entrants including first-time countries, underlining the increasing emphasis on palliative care in cancer programmes even in parts of the world where it has often been neglected due to financial limitations or cultural differences. In addition, 26 centres achieved reaccreditation: seven have been continuously accredited since 2004, four since 2007 and 15 since 2010. This demonstrates the importance of maintaining the respected ESMO designation.

Successful applicants are bestowed the celebrated title "ESMO Designated Centre of Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care". They can also use the ESMO logo and host fellows in palliative medicine who are supported by ESMO grants.

Cherny said: "The ESMO Designated Centre of Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care title is highly sought after and centres are keen to receive and display this recognition. This coveted acknowledgment is a source of pride for centres and their staff and demonstrates to the outside world that they deliver palliative care as an integral part of their medical oncology services."

Oncology departments and cancer centres internationally that provide comprehensive services in supportive and palliative care as part of their routine care can apply for the ESMO recognition. The programme aims to promote the integration of palliative care services into cancer care guidelines, and stimulate palliative care education and training for medical oncologists and other healthcare professionals. The criteria for accreditation are based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines on palliative care for cancer patients.

Cherny said: "We are hoping that with the ever rising profile of this important ESMO designation, by 2020 we will have more than 300 designated centres across the ESMO membership."
