4th National Cancer Conference

P.A.V.E.L. Association “Receiving Help, Life Is Bright” – the association of parents with cancer-ill children – hereby invites you to participate to the 4th National Conference concerning child and youth cancer “Long term intervention – an essential requirement for the integration of the cancer-ill child!”. The event is due to take place on November 26th, 2015, at Phoenicia Grand Hotel, Bucharest.

Our partner in organising this conference is “The National College of Social Workers from Romania” (CNASR), and our media partner is Health Policies Magazine.

Continuing the efforts started in the previous editions in 2011, 2012 and 2014, the conference will put the situation of cancer-ill children and youth and their families into the spotlight of civil society, the central and local public authorites and trend setters, professional associations, specialists in various fields and the general public. The central message of the event is: “Cancer is defeated only when all the consequences of its effects have been overcome”.

This conference is part of the Project “Our Children Choose Health” – a project carried out by P.A.V.E.L. Association during July 15th, 2013 – July 15th, 2016, throughout the Swiss-Romanian Cooperation Programme aimed to contribute to the reduction of economic and social disparities between Romania and more advanced EU countries (countries from the extended EU) and within Romania, as well as the reduction of economic and social disparities between dynamic urban centres and weaker outlying structural regions.

Invitees to the conference will include experts and personalities from social care and child protection fields, doctors and nurses in the most important paediatric onco-hematologic wards/centres in Romania, psychologists, hospital trainers/teachers, representatives of patient associations, central and local public authorities representatives, funding bodies representatives, media, trend setters and opinion leaders. Health Ministry, Labour , Family, Social Protection and Elder People Ministry, National Health Insurance and Ministry of Education representatives will also be invited to attend..

By discussing the proposed themes, through the great diversity and broad presence of participants, by promoting the need to provide long term support, to provide a continuum of services during hospitalisation as well as at home for the patients, we hope to contribute to increasing the integration and well-being of cancer-ill children and youth and their families. In this way, we also promote the creation of the premises for a national support network through which current needs and provided services are permanently synchronised and updated.
