Did you find the working / discussion group sessions effective?
1. It is a good opportunity for changes of experiences.
2. Yes. Moderators managed to control some “anarchic” tendencies of participants!
3. Not very effective /some persons had problems with language/ we just described situation/ there was little time
useful discussion / the problem (financing) is too complex - it deserves whole conference. Small group sessions
should be organized in another way.
4. Yes because we had time to speak together
5. Yes, it was good opportunity to meet people responsible for different sectors.
6. They are very effective for precising terms, for see better what was done and what must be done in the future
are very communicable persons and understand questions which we give them :)
7. Yes
8. Yes, but they were mostly useful to compare the situation in different countries
9. Maybe it will be better not only to speak about the situation in the countries, but also to speak about the possib
development of the PC.
10. Yes
11. The small groups were bigger that I would like, but I think it is not possible to make them smaller
12. Yes
13. Small groups were very effective and informative
14. In general - yes
16. Yes, inspirational
17. Good opportunity for debate and sharing ideas
18. Yes
20. It was one of the most useful part of the meeting
21. Yes. I hope our team will do Policy on PC
22. Small group session was organized in the way that everybody was talking about financing of PC in their coun
So at the beginning participants were talking even 15 minutes, and countries which talked last had opportunity to
2 minutes. So it must be a little bit more focused.
23. Useful space for discussion of terms, experience and statement. Prevention against misunderstanding

What happened during the conference that surprised or provoked you?
1. I loved the idea of picture exhibition. Excellent+++.
2. Lectures and country presentations
3. I was surprised by low ability to speak English of some people. But I see it as common situation in CEE
countries (Isolation). It made the situation worse. It is a big barrier in effective cooperation and understanding.
4. Different experiences
5. Sometimes I was surprised that some people can be too aggressive
6. Achievements of countries which only a few years ago started to develop Palliative -Hospice Care (e.g.
Mongolia).
7. Information about development in Romania, standards of Hungary and Poland.
8. Presented by country team situation does not reflect the real country situation in some cases
9. During the conference I was surprised by strong organization.
10. Friendly working atmosphere, especially work in team
11. Not to have the opportunity to see Budapest. Not to be in the room with day light, only in the room with
artificial lights (there is opportunity to make visible slides also by the day light!), Waiters in restaurants were
serving meals for some groups of people as they were less than others.
12. Friendly working atmosphere
13. Some participants are not interested in hospice or palliative care, were nominated only because of their
position in “higher institution”; one participant [name undecipherable] felt uncomfortable because he was not a
14. The pictures expressed on the wall; the different prints about psychological problems of the patients and care
givers, that clearly shows the key word is “the care” and the rest comes with your own spirituality (in formal
meetings).
15. I was provoked by the difference between our country and other advanced country in PC.
16. Dances
17. Strong organization
18. Nothing except the last day what was a little chaotic because of the change of the program
19. Partly country presentations and excellent quality of the animator; photo exhibition
20. Nice meetings with nice people working for PC. Excellent presentations of Catalonian experience and D.
Schumacher and Jan Stjernsward.
21. The Mongolian experience and the Catalonian home care services!
22. The projector

What needs to happen to continue the momentum of this conference? Please give a specific example.

16. Internet communication - to inform participants about other conferences

18. We must put in practice, at governmental level our 3 objectives.
19. Minimum - standards
20. Not to stop. It became clear that we are going on the right way.
21. We are going on with the action plan in the discussion with the policy makers and professionals.
22. The contacts will continue and the conferences, we hope, as well
23. Regular communications

26. A report / follow up of every country one year and/or 6 months later.
27. Organize at national level this type of seminar with local authorities involved
28. After one year should be evaluation of results
29. The meeting in the next year
31. often organize conferences
32. To implement the action plan

35. Palliative Care Standards
What needs to happen to continue the momentum of this conference? Please give a specific example.
1. Follow-up? I.e. asking the participants what happened in their countries after the conference (in terms of P.C.
policy etc.) - or what they managed to change themselves – after a year or two? Another similar conference in 2
years? Starting with the reports of 2 years of activities?
2. Countries in different changes of Palliative care
3. I see the cooperation of CEE countries very useful and needed. Maybe we can meet once per year and share
our experience - giving lectures and presentations.
4. After one year it should be the conference to present the work which should be done in the year
5. Publish the results in English and Russian, website, newsletter, EAPC and ECEPT – Supplement to European
J. of Palliative Care.
6. To increase an understanding of the process to integrate palliative care into national health care policy and
system
7. Keeping the communication among all participants; organizing meetings 1-2 times a year; asking for reports 1
x a year.
8. Analysis of our work which we plan in this conference after one year
9. Maybe some new ideas of Prof. from Spain. He was too active and from time to time was boring.
10. To be in touch, but not in formal touch. For us it is very expensive to visit EAPC congresses (my salary as a
senior physician is about 500 EUR (month) and will never be more), and it is very useful thing for me!
11. To present after one year plans for the future work
12. To complete the web page with materials from this conference etc.
13. 12 countries in some cases is too many because we can not provide detailed discussion
14. More preparation, materials for participating countries.
15. Keep contact inter participants via internet; repeat the conference in one year – in another CEE country
16. Internet communication - to inform participants about other conferences
17. We need to keep in touch , that we don’t give up when things don’t go well (and as quickly as we would
expect)
18. We must put in practice, at governmental level our 3 objectives.
19. Minimum - standards
20. Not to stop. It became clear that we are going on the right way.
21. We are going on with the action plan in the discussion with the policy makers and professionals.
22. The contacts will continue and the conferences, we hope, as well
23. Regular communications
24. Continue cooperation between those who have managed and succeeded (Catalonia for instance) and those
who are already in pioneer times (Cz).
25. Keep in touch and organize country to country specific meetings with politicians and decision makers
including experienced decision makers from the countries where PC works.
26. A report / follow up of every country one year and/or 6 months later.
27. Organize at national level this type of seminar with local authorities involved
28. After one year should be evaluation of results
29. The meeting in the next year
31. often organize conferences
32. To implement the action plan
33. We need to stay in contact through e-mail and to inform each other about further improvements in PC Policy
in our countries, also when some new document is released to pass it via e-mail…
34. Meeting, conference on PC at the national level with participation of international “celebrities” in the field +
WHO for national health management + policy makers with popularization in media; New conference 2 years later
with the same participants (as many as possible) to discus fulfillment of “national plans of actions”
35. Palliative Care Standards
Your recommendations on the improvement of the organization of the future conferences:

16. I think it was extremely well organized
17. To send direct invitations to the decision factories in our country (Health Assurance President, Ministry of
Health).
18. It was perfect!
19. An excellent meeting. Thank you for everything.
20. More free time for participants

22. Do your best in the future, I can not think of anything at the moment
23. Nothing. It was Excellent. Thanks a lot!!!
24. Better organize working / country groups work

26. More free time for participants to contact citizens in Budapest
27. All the scientific part was excellent. The participants need a bit more free time for site visit, city visit etc.
28. I think the organization was excellent
29. The conference was very well organized, it is good model of conference
Your recommendations on the improvement of the organization of the future conferences:
1. It is a good model for the future. Maybe it is a good idea including the visit of the Hospice.
2. Keep it of this level and it is going to be absolutely fine!!!
3. Field visit
4. To send smokers to some place far away from the place where other participants want to breath. To allow some
sun to enter the room (not being like in cave). The meals were too heavy (lot f meat), I prefer more vegetables. I
appreciate a lot of soft drinks!!! Thank you!
5. Inform us about the problems and how to solve them in PC.
6. Better selection of delegates - which must include professionals working in palliative / hospice care services.
7. Assessment
8. It is difficult to share a hotel room with somebody that you do not know and sharing bath as well. If possible please
organize accommodation without necessity of sharing rooms for participants.
9. More free time for participants
10. Inform us about the problems in PC in country which have PC a few years.
11. To make it for smaller groups. To send official invitations for policy makers in ministry of health and social affairs
because then will come only people interesting in the problem…
12. Presentation of practical problems, not present only ideal models
13. More concrete presentations. Case and presentations
14. More small groups work (mix, not only national) EXACT TASKS (printed on paper) would be more effective –
fruitful ; “western” participants thought CEE countries are deeper underdeveloped and underestimated our
knowledge or country expertise; people who write or evaluate country situation should LIVE there at least for 1 year
to understand what’s going on and why.
15. Sometimes there were the mistakes when you were speaking about Central and East Europe. It will be better to
let the countries to speak about their PC situation in their republic alone – to give one day or afternoon for their
scientific and real information
16. I think it was extremely well organized
17. To send direct invitations to the decision factories in our country (Health Assurance President, Ministry of
Health).
18. It was perfect!
19. An excellent meeting. Thank you for everything.
20. More free time for participants
21. Please give the questionnaires already at the beginning of the conference to enable us to fill the form
immediately after the lecture / presentation! The evaluation will be more reliable! Organization was excellent!
22. Do your best in the future, I can not think of anything at the moment
23. Nothing. It was Excellent. Thanks a lot!!!
24. Better organize working / country groups work

25. Could there be some invitation sent directly from the office in NY to our authorities to future conferences as they
are more sensible to voices coming from outside. Involvement of the national office of Romania would be welcomed.
26. More free time for participants to contact citizens in Budapest
27. All the scientific part was excellent. The participants need a bit more free time for site visit, city visit etc.
28. I think the organization was excellent
29. The conference was very well organized, it is good model of conference
1. I appreciate free time from 5-7 p.m. Thank you!
For the next time I recommend to replace Georgia and Mongolia by Latvia and Estonia. They are culturally and
geographically closer to our country.
2. I didn’t like alcohol served during dinner; too much food (hard to resist temptation); waiters discriminated some
countries – preferred “western” participants (served with priority); I liked water we could drink (on tables); it is not
healthy to sit all day in DARK room with heavy smoke from the kitchen and from smokers; thank you for
hospitality, social programme, hospice visit, taxi.
3. It is not fair that waiters serve the food according to the nations (we got the food sometimes as the last); it is
not healthy to sit all day in the artificial light (natural light will be better); I am very happy that we have had enough
water for drinking (and also without CO2 – thank you); it is very good that we will have the opportunity to visit the
hospice in Hungary (such practical information is very helpful) ; I appreciate that we got copy of the materials
which were presented.
4. Excellent photo exhibition
5. Perfect preparation and assistance during the conference
6. Thank you very much for organizing very important, nice and useful conference
