Highlights of the AIIHPC’s work throughout 2020 can now be seen in the Annual Review 2020. It was an extraordinary year with the arrival of COVID-19 in Ireland in March. AIIHPC supported the delivery of good care through a series of webinars and the use of The Palliative Hub – Professional as a key information resource.
Service user and carer involvement continued through Voices4Care, with meetings switching to ‘Zoom’. Highlights in the research calendar included the online Palliative Care Research Network (PCRN) annual symposium in December. AIIHPC also hosted the EAPC international research seminar ‘Public Health Research in Palliative Care – Towards Solutions for Global Challenges’.
A successful seventh Palliative Care Week in September 2020 had the theme, Palliative Care: In This Together. These are some of the highlights in AIIHPC’s Annual Review 2020.
