All Ireland Institute for Hospice and Palliative Care


Could your palliative care story help others?

Would you like to use your experience of palliative and end of life care to help others who could benefit from this care?
All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC) and the Health Service Executive (HSE) Quality Improvement Division are collaborating to produce short video clips which will highlight a wide range of palliative care experiences.

If you are willing to be filmed talking about your experiences, whether you are living with a life-limiting illness, or are caring for or have cared for someone with such an illness, AIIHPC wants to hear from you.

We want to produce a resource which can be used for raising awareness and understanding of palliative care; promotes wider conversation around palliative care; and supports learning and education among health and social care professionals.
We hope to have experiences related to a range of life-limiting illness reflected in the video clips which will be two to three minutes long. We want to hear of experiences across all age ranges, including children and young people, and places where care is provided.

Filming will take place in January 2017 and people interested are invited to contact AIIHPC at the earliest opportunity. We suggest that the experience which a person is willing to talk about should be within the past three-four years. We are mindful that this is a very sensitive topic, which can be difficult to talk about, and a supportive environment for participants will be provided during the filming process.
