The official launch of Manual de Cuidados Paliativos INCTR Brasil took place during the Multidisciplinary Symposium and the Palliative Care Session, XII Brazilian Congress of Pediatric Oncology – SOBOPE, held in Curitiba, Brazil on October 1st.

One of the most important newspapers in Brazil, Folha de São Paulo, interviewed Dr. Claudia Epelman. Her interview appeared in the newspaper’s Health & Science section along with an announcement about the launch of the Portuguese version of the handbook. This has helped to generate a great deal of interest in not only the handbook, but also in palliative care in general.

Many copies of the handbook were sold during the congress. The handbook will be advertised during palliative care symposiums, congresses and meetings. Individuals on INCTR Brazil’s mailing list, including participants of the 41st Congress of SIOP who expressed an interest in the Portuguese version of the INCTR Palliative Care Handbook will be informed that it is now available.

One thousand copies of the Portuguese version of the handbook have been printed. The price of the handbook is approximately 13 euros.
