HONORS AND awards
centre of excellence for the Incorporation of Oncological and Palliative Care
The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) has recognised the Clínica Universidad de Navarra as a centre of excellence for the incorporation of palliative care and oncological treatment (2010-2012).
The Clínica is one of the 23 centres worldwide to receive this recognition. This was awarded after a comprehensive evaluation by ESMO of the many aspects of the services provided by the Oncology Department and Palliative Care Unit at the Clínica.
Some of the key aspects analysed were the interaction between Oncologists and Palliative Care specialists, the professional experience of the doctors and nurses in the Palliative Care Unit, and how they share the responsibilities in caring for patients with complex health care needs.
The Palliative Care team at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra is made up of two nurses with specific training and vast experience in Oncology patient care, a clinical psychologist trained in Edmonton (Canada), who did her MD in Anderson Houston (United States) and in the University of Geneva (Switzerland); an Oncology Doctor trained in Edmonton (Canada), and a family doctor with a Masters in Palliative Care.
