European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC)

Description
The EAPC, established in 1988, is a membership organisation that aims to advance, influence, promote and develop palliative care in Europe. The EAPC is recognised by the Council of Europe, has links with the World Health Organisation and is involved in several European Union Funded research projects on palliative care. Since its inception, the EAPC has evolved into the leading palliative care organisation in Europe providing a forum for all of those either working, or with an interest in, palliative care throughout Europe and beyond. Currently the EAPC has 59 member associations from 33 European countries and has individual members from 52 countries globally. Members are engaged in palliative care from a range of perspectives; specialist clinical practice, education, policy and research. The EAPC is respectful of the cultural and political diversities of our members across Europe but aims to ensure that as collective group that we speak with ‘one voice-one vision’ on matters important for the practice and development of palliative care. Palliative care aims to improve quality of life for patients and their families who are living with a life-threatening condition.
