The aim of shared care is to cure every child with cancer, with optimal quality of life. The principle of shared care is close cooperation between a central paediatric oncology expertise centre and local shared care centres, so that the young patient can avoid long distance travels for standard clinical examinations and treatments. it is important that the shared care centres meet certain quality criteria and connect closely with the central expertise centre, so that the best possible care for the child is guaranteed.

In this Gold Webinar, we will present various shared care models in Europe, critically examine whether they deliver what they promise and whether they can serve as best practice models for other countries.
