About

The Portuguese Association of Palliative Care, founded in 1995 as “National Association for Palliative Care – ANCP”, aims to promote palliative care in Portugal. Most of the founding members worked in the palliative care unit of the Portuguese Institute of Oncology of Porto (Oporto). Since they felt the need to push palliative care in Portugal they decided to bring together professionals from different areas and with different backgrounds in a professional association.
