Context / Contexte
Each year, more than a million Europeans are affected by disability caused by incurable cancer. The consequences of cancer, including disability and a reduced quality of life, can have a profound impact on overall well-being. Though individuals in Europe facing these issues may benefit from rehabilitation in their care, these needs are mostly unmet by current European health systems.
Objectives / Objectifs
The aim of the INSPIRE project is to test the clinical effectiveness and cost of an integrated early palliative rehabilitation intervention to improve function and quality of life in people with incurable cancer.
This will consist of a multinational randomized controlled trial in five European countries in which 340 participants will be recruited to assess the clinical and cost-effectiveness of palliative rehabilitation on quality of life, disability, symptom burden and goal attainment in people with incurable cancer. The intervention can be adapted and integrated into different health systems using existing staff and services, with little or no additional cost.
Expected impact and results / Impact et résultats attendus
Through the collaboration, rehabilitation will gain greater visibility and establish a foundation for future research aimed at improving care for those suffering from untreatable cancer. The analysis of health services will allow for a deeper understanding of discrepancies and diversities in practice, including the organization of palliative rehabilitation services, to better facilitate their incorporation into health systems. The resulting international consensus will provide a blueprint for developing and agreeing upon a globally applicable framework for palliative rehabilitation for individuals with incurable cancer.
LIP’s contribution / Rôle de LIP
LIP will provide assistance to HCL and ensure efficient project management by supporting the overall project coordination, the administrative and financial management and the contribution to legal / IPR management.
