16th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care
As questions are asked related to equitable access to palliative care in Europe and around the world, the congress “Global Palliative Care — Shaping the future” will explore how palliative care fits with the current global health agenda.
Five years on from the adoption of the 2014 World Health Assembly Resolution on Palliative Care, the EAPC Berlin congress is the perfect time to reflect on the progress in the development of palliative care globally and to identify areas where more needs to be done. This Congress will take place shortly after the 2018 United Nations High Level Meeting on non-communicable diseases, and this will give delegates the opportunity to examine the extent to which palliative care has been included in universal health coverage within various health systems.
The increasing recognition of the importance of palliative care in society is reflected in the growing number of EAPC congress delegates who represent a range of disciplines from many countries throughout Europe and beyond. The EAPC World Congress provides a unique opportunity to network and meet with colleagues, clinicians, caregivers, researchers, volunteers and educators in palliative care from across the globe to exchange knowledge, to celebrate diversity and richness, make new links, new collaborations and develop projects during the time spent together.
Berlin is the capital of Germany, the country's largest city and the major centre for politics, culture and science. It is an ideal place to host the EAPC World Congress, where more than 3000 participants are expected to attend the congress.
