COMECE: Debate on “Assisting the Elderly. Palliative Care in the EU”

(Brussels) “Assisting the Elderly. Palliative Care in the European Union”: this is the title of the debate that will take place on Monday, 22 February, at 12:30 in Brussels (19 Square de Meeûs). The initiative is sponsored by the COMECE in cooperation with Hospitality Europe, and the liaison and representation Office to the European institutions of the socio-medical facilities of the Hospitaller Order of St John of God and the Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The working group on ethics and research in healthcare of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) has issued an opinion on the subject of palliative care. The report reflects on how medical competence is best combined with the most humane techniques adopted by health professionals to guarantee an optimum level of care for a vulnerable and dependent population group. “There is a challenge to those who shape public opinion – reads a note presenting the event -, there is a challenge to our legislators and there is room for a public debate on palliative care across the EU”. Speakers at the event will include Mgr. Patrick Daly, General Secretary of COMECE, Carlo Filippo Galasso, Secretary General of Hospitality Europe, and Patrick Verspieren from “Centre Sevres” in Paris.
