All Ireland Institute for Hospice and Palliative Care

    Global Colloquium

    Global Colloquium

    All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC) was delighted to host the Global Colloquium on Palliative Care and are indebted to the World Health Organisation for their co-sponsorship of the event.

    The Global Colloquium on Palliative Care was a key initiative for AIIHPC. The purpose of the Colloquium was to gather an assembly of national level policy and clinical experts from across the world to explore palliative care issues and to provide a context for purposeful discussion of the World Health Assembly Resolution (WHA67.19) which calls on member states to strengthen the integration of palliative care services into national health services.

    Themes that were explored during the Colloquium included a public health approach to palliative care, models of palliative care provision, palliative care and chronic illness throughout the lifespan and the integration of palliative care into various care settings and the challenges for palliative care leadership, research, education and practice.

    Among the delegates in attendance were members of Voices4Care, AIIHPC’s panel of palliative care users and carers who brought unique insights about palliative care which were invaluable to discussions at the Colloquium about palliative care service design, development and implementation.
