Who Are We?
All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care reflects a broad range of expertise in the service delivery, academic preparation for and management of hospice and palliative care across the island of Ireland. Consortium members and their organisations are experts in palliative care service planning and delivery, education and training, research and policy analysis. Through its partnership approach, AIIHPC promotes strategic, evidence-based contributions to the policy/practice environment, North and South and through a collaborative and comprehensive approach deliver a better experience for patients and their families.
AIIHPC was formally established in October 2010, following a successful bid by the Consortium members to secure funding for the organisation. The significant bulk of funding is derived from The Atlantic Philanthropies, with additional funding from the Irish Hospice Foundation, Irish Cancer Society and also from the consortium partners themselves.
In the past year the Health Research Board along with the AIIHPC have funded the establishment of the Structured Research Network. In addition, The Research and Development Office of Northern Ireland have established a fund for two PhD Scholarships over the lifetime of the institute
