WHO Palliative Care pre-congress workshop at the EAPC World Research Congress 2021

‘Expanding access to quality palliative care worldwide’

5th October 13.30-16.00 (CET)

During the session, WHO launched two new resources on palliative care. Firstly a report on Assessing the development of palliative care worldwide: a set of actionable indicators and secondly a brief on Quality health services and palliative care: practical approaches and resources to support policy, strategy and practise. Throughout the session we heard from multiple palliative care organisations and representatives of member states on the successes and challenges of implementing integrated palliative care services in countries and how existing WHO resources have been applied.
