To identify the major milestones or critical points of a patient’s experience in order to develop improved integrated care, with the understanding that not all cancer patients are the same, in other words, working from individuality.
The Oncology Plan working group and Training Service of the Basque Health Service (Osakidetza) jointly decided to undertake a Creative Pill with Conexiones improbables to address the experience of patients in all aspects of life, not only clinical. In other words, the aim was to truly understand them as individuals. A working group was therefore set up by Osakidetza to achieve this goal comprising the participation of health professionals (two oncologists, an oncology nurse, a primary care physician, the coordinator of the Active Patient programme and a psycho-oncologist), patients who have either overcome cancer or are in the process of being cured and 3 relatives of these patients (one of whom has already passed away).
The results of the Creative Pill will be presented in the form of an artistic work at the International Conference on Integrated Care to be held in Donostia/San Sebastián on 1 April.
