Mapping Public Engagement on Palliative Care, Death, Dying, Loss and Care

A range of public engagement activities regarding dying, death and bereavement, and raising awareness of palliative care have been taking place across Ireland for a number of years.

All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC) and the Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) have been key agents in this work. Over the past decade, the IHF has been involved in initiatives associated with public health/health promoting/public engagement on dying, death and bereavement. AIIHPC has led Palliative Care Week across the island of Ireland since 2014 – the Institute’s annual awareness-raising campaign, which is supported by all of the Institute’s partners, including the IHF, and other palliative care stakeholders.

With a view to continuing involvement in, and development of, public engagement and a public health approach to palliative care, the IHF provided funding to AIIHPC to assist mapping out activities relating to initiatives in Ireland and internationally. This Mapping Public Engagement on Palliative Care, Death, Dying, Loss and Care document is the result of this work.
