Palliative Care Competence Framework

The Health Service Executive (HSE), All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC), the Irish Association for Palliative Care (IAPC) and the Irish Hospice Foundation developed this framework in 2013/14.

Core Competence

The framework provides for core competence in palliative care and details individual competence for each human and social care discipline. The core areas include;
  • Communication
  • Optimising quality of life
  • Principles of palliative care
  • Care planning
  • grief and bereavement
  • professional and ethical practice
The framework provides a clear evidence-based and effective palliative care for generalist and specialist practitioners irrespective of place and practice.
