European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC)

The European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) is the leading palliative care organisation in Europe.  The EAPC aims to advance, influence, promote and develop palliative care throughout Europe and beyond. Through our significant European network, we raise awareness about palliative care and the value and benefits it can have for individuals, healthcare services and communities.

As a membership organisation, the EAPC works in close collaboration with our members, research partners and other European and international agencies.  

The EAPC is a core partner in 20 large EU-funded projects, with dissemination, exploitation and knowledge transfer as a primary focus and is committed to promoting the development of high-quality palliative care across the life span by fostering and sharing palliative care education, research, policy and evidence-based practice.
