Dr Gary Rodin - Princess Margaret Cancer Center, Toronto, Canada

Dr Gary Rodin speaks to ecancer at the 2019 AORTIC conference in Maputo about the structure and benefits of palliative care in Africa.

He discusses the recent developments in this area, including improved screening methods to identify patients with physical and psychological distress, along with more routine interventions.

He also outlines some ways to increase the availability of palliative care, which involves the integration of health policy and mainstream medical care.
