Palliative Care Public Awareness

Palliative Care Week 2018 – Palliative Care, Because Every Moment Matters

Palliative Care, Because Every Moment Matters is the theme for Palliative Care Week 9 to 15 September 2018.

The focus is on increasing awareness and understanding of palliative care among both the public and health care professionals.

This year marks the centenary of the birth of Dame Cicely Saunders, a pioneer of the modern hospice movement. The development of the hospice movement is a history shared on the island of Ireland and across the Irish Sea.

The theme for Palliative Care Week 2018 resonates with Dame Cicely’s iconic quote: 

You matter because you are you and you matter until the end of your life.
