The aim of ISPCAN’s Thinking Space is to provide the international community with a snapshot of high-level clinical and policy advice that is: informed by multi-cultural, multi-lingual, and multi-disciplinary input; universally applicable across language and culture; sensitive to the realities of resources; and a practical resource for senior practitioners hoping to influence policy makers and senior officials in their own geographical and cultural areas.
More than 35 people from a broad range of national, professional, and organizational backgrounds attended the inaugural Thinking Space. Further engagement and concurrent on-line discussion with other ISPCAN members was enabled through live video streaming of the presentations and supplemented by input from workshops at subsequent ISPCAN international meetings.
It is our hope that this document provides an insight into this complex area of public policy and clinical work and serves as an inspiration for decision makers and practitioners around the globe to take action.
