ADAPT Reports

The Assessing Doctors’ Attitudes on Palliative Treatment (ADAPT) study identifies physician access, barriers, knowledge, and perceptions on palliative care integration for children with cancer as outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO) guide in 2018. The ADAPT study was first conducted in Eurasia, and has since been spread to other regions.

  1. In collaboration with local stakeholders, the ADAPT study was first conducted in 2019 across 11 countries in the Eurasia region and received 424 physician responses. ADAPT Eurasia study findings were published in two publications in Cancer regarding physician attitudes and barriers to early integration of palliative care. ADAPT reports displaying Eurasian regional and country-specific data were developed in English and Russian to increase the accessibility of study findings in the local context and to inform advocacy for evidence-based palliative care infrastructure and policies.
