The European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC), established in 1988, is a membership organisation that aims to advance, influence, promote and develop palliative care in Europe. The EAPC is the leading palliative care organisation in Europe providing a forum for all of those working, or with an interest in, palliative care throughout Europe and beyond. Currently (2017) the EAPC has got 55 member associations from 31 European countries and individual members from 48 countries globally. The EAPC is respectful of the cultural and political diversities of members across Europe and yet aims to speak with ‘one voice-one vision’ on matters important for the practice and development of palliative care.
