EPCRC: Improved treatment of pain, depression and fatigue through translation research



The EPCRC (2006-2010) was the first major palliative care project within the Framework Programmes of the EU.

The project engaged 60 co-workers at 11 centres in six European countries.

The EPCRC addressed three main areas in three main symptoms: genetics, assessment and classification, and guidelines; in pain, depression and cachexia.

The EPCRC had close links to the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) and the EAPC Research Network. EPCRC workshops were arranged at all EAPC congresses 2007-2010.

Please go to Project Overview in the menu to your left for more information.
 


New European Guidelines: CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES ON CANCER CACHEXIA IN ADVANCED CANCER PATIENTS

The EPCRC cachexia work team has produced new European, clinical guidelines on the management of cancer cachexia in advanced cancer patients, with a focus on refractory cachexia. This has been a comprehensive process involving expert and public consultations and literature reviews. The final guideline may be accessed below, together with a patient friendly summary (leaflet) in five European languages. 

The final guideline document may be downloaded here.


A patient friendly summary of the guidelines may be downloaded here in the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, and Norwegian.
