An All-Ireland Gateway to Palliative Care Information

The Palliative Hub has been developed by AIIHPC with a number of palliative and hospice care stakeholders to act as a gateway to information and resources about palliative care on the island of Ireland.

The Hub seeks to deliver this information and resources to a number of audiences through five different components:

  • Children and Young People
  • Adult
  • Carers
  • Learning Platform
  • Professional

The main website provides a general overview of what palliative care is for the general public and acts as a central point to access the four major components of the hub.

The Palliative Hub was created to fill a recognised gap in the palliative care sector for a dedicated website to help people from a variety of backgrounds access and find the information and resources they need.

There is already a large amount of information for the general public on the internet but sometimes finding and accessing this information can be difficult. The concept behind both the Children and Young People Palliative Hub and the Adult Palliative Hub is to link through to this information rather than replicating it. The content on the websites has been provided by professionals who have worked in palliative and hospice care for a number of years.

The Palliative Hub – Carers provides core information that is targeted at family members or friends who are providing support to a person who needs palliative care. These people are often referred to as ‘carers’. The website aims to help carers to understand how palliative care may assist their relative and also provides advice on how carers can best support him/her whilst also looking after themselves.

The Professional Palliative Hub provides online resources for health and social care professionals, researchers and educators.

The Learning Platform works to underpin all three of the websites by offering an online learning environment for both the public and professional. It also offers an environment for palliative care educators including hospice education providers to host their own learning materials.
