About BeCOn OWN 2018

The fourth annual sponsored webcast of the Be Connected Onco-pain Empowerment Network (BeCOn OWN) initiative, is a leading European educational event dedicated to addressing the challenges healthcare professionals face in caring for people with cancer.

The overall objective of this year’s program is to optimise the timing and quality of care across the patient journey.

This year it will be not  focus only to BTCP but it will cover  more  patient experience, quality of care and patient satisfaction that can all be achieved by considering supportive and palliative care as early as possible in the patient journey, a journey that, so often now, is longer than ever.

The event will be streamed live from Amsterdam on November 29th to a European audience of physicians and will include a faculty of international experts sharing unique perspectives and practical insights


Enhancing Patient Experience
Enhancing patient experience is a core objective and a direct measure of performance. The aim of the session is to describe patient perceptions of supportive and palliative care and facilitate better communication and shared decision-making

Enhancing Quality of Care
Jean Klastersky and Stefano Fogli: The importance of supportive care measures to optimise management and outcomes of cancer patients should not be overlooked. The aim of the session is to help attendees evaluate supportive treatment options for the prevention of febrile neutropenia from a clinical and pharmacological perspective. Sebastiano Mercadante: Breakthrough cancer pain (BTcP) has a significant impact on quality of life. Anxiety, depression and sleep disorders are common and the inevitability of further episodes takes a toll with many patients experiencing worsening mobility and social isolation. The aim of this session is to share the findings of a recent European HCP and patient survey on BTcP.
