Today palliative care and haematology are disciplines that have begun to engage in mutual recognition. Slowly but steadily, new evidence is emerging on the benefits of mutual cooperation.

This workshop aims to foster mutual knowledge between the fields of palliative care and clinical haematology, grounded in an evidence-based discussion.

It will be open to all professionals involved in the care of haematological patients (especially multiple myeloma patients) and palliative care professionals.
