Palliative Care Week is a campaign dedicated to raising public awareness and increasing understanding of palliative care and its benefits. Its primary audience includes those who could benefit from palliative care, health and social care professionals, the wider public, and communities across the island of Ireland. AIIHPC celebrated the 10th anniversary of the campaign in 2023, having led and coordinated the annual campaign since 2014.

You, Me and Palliative Care.

Planning has already commenced for Palliative Care Week 2024, which will take place on 8-14 September. The theme is ‘You, Me and Palliative Care.’ The theme was chosen with the aim of reminding people about the different ways that palliative care can touch any of our lives, how it can affect all of us and how it can benefit us if and when we may need it.

Campaign materials will be available to download on this page soon.

If you would like to get involved or have any comments or suggestions please contact Paula Pinto Araya, email: ppinto@aiihpc.org.

Why Palliative Care Week ?

  • Misunderstanding about palliative care persists, meaning some people who could benefit are less willing to seek it, potentially missing out on improved quality of life
  • It comes under the broad understanding of public health approaches to palliative care
  • It is in line with key palliative care policies across the island of Ireland

AIIHPC will continue to build on and learn from the success of previous Palliative Care Weeks. Those who wish to find out more about what happened in previous campaigns can read the reports below:
