palliative care week 2021

We are a proud partner of Palliative Care Week 2021, which takes place from Sunday 12 to Saturday 18 September 2021. 

This year’s theme is Palliative Care: It’s more than you think 

Hosted by the All-Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC), it aims to raise awareness of the difference palliative care can make to people with life-limiting conditions, carers and families throughout the island of Ireland.  

Working with partners and colleagues across the palliative care sector and with other organisations and individuals interested in health and wellbeing, AIIHPC has facilitated an annual Palliative Care Week since 2014.
