All Ireland Institute for Hospice and Palliative Care


Education Network

A key output for AIIHPC is the development of an Education Network for Palliative Care.

The purpose of the Education Network is to bring the providers and consumers of education together to ensure that learning opportunities are available, accessible and of the highest quality.

The Network will consider the current realities relating to palliative care education. They will help to prioritise key initiatives and will implement appropriate sub-committees to drive specific initiatives including:

  • Supporting professional bodies in the establishment of core competences for palliative care
  • Translation of palliative care qualifications and experience to European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) equivalence
  • Promoting the availability and accessibility of palliative care education
