Palliative Care Week 2020

 

Palliative Care Week 2020 will take place from Sunday 13 to Saturday 19 September 2020.

Palliative Care Week aims to raise awareness of the difference palliative care can make to people with life-limiting conditions, carers and families throughout the island of Ireland. Working with partners and colleagues across the palliative care sector and with other organisations and individuals interested in health and wellbeing, AIIHPC has facilitated an annual Palliative Care Week since 2014.

Why Palliative Care Week ?

  • Misunderstanding about palliative care persists, meaning some people who could benefit are less willing to seek it, potentially missing out on improved quality of life 
  • It comes under the broad understanding of public health approaches to palliative care
  • It is in line with key palliative care policies across the island of Ireland
