MEDIA ADVISORY


WHO: The Institute for Palliative Medicine at San Diego Hospice

WHAT: “International Insights on Palliative Care” lecture series featuring Dr. Xavier Gomez-Batiste, Oncologist and Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Center for Public Health Palliative Care Programs, Catalan Institute of Oncology, Barcelona, Spain

WHEN: 12 noon • Monday, January 26, 2009

WHERE: Institute for Palliative Medicine, 4311 Third Avenue, San Diego

WHY: Dr. Gomez-Batiste is one of the world’s pioneers in delivering palliative care. Thanks to his leadership, 95% of the population across Catalonia in Spain has easy access to palliative care services.

Dr. Gomez-Batiste has been able to demonstrate the long-term cost savings of this program. Lessons from Catalonia could be applied to improve the experience of patients living with chronic illness and their families in California, as well as enhancing our healthcare delivery models.

In San Diego County, nearly half of all residents who could benefit from palliative care and hospice services do not receive them.

Members of the news media are welcome to attend this program. You may also arrange to interview Dr. Gomez-Batiste prior to the program. Contact Melissa DelaCalzada at 619-517-2053 to schedule an interview.
