14th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care

May 8-10, 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark.

The EAPC announces its 14th World Congress with the theme “Building Bridges”.

Palliative Care practice is complex and challenging and its success depends on building bridges between different professional and nonprofessional groups, disciplines, countries, regions and continents. In order to enable the construction of a vibrant and challenging conference program a significant part of the program will be built on submitted abstracts. In that way the Congress authorities invite you to contribute to the scientific program by submitting abstracts for posters and oral communications.

They seek to bring together the best caregivers, clinicians, researchers and educators in the field of palliative care along with the best opportunities to meet friends, colleagues and experts and gain new ideas and insights on how to improve care for patients and their families.
