The 18th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care – EAPC2023 will be held in-person in Rotterdam in June 2023. The theme “Equity and Diversity in Palliative Care” will draw attention to the utmost need and goal of creating equity of fair access, opportunity, and advancement in palliative care for all people.
Sometimes, diversity is used as a euphemism for “outside the majority” or “different from the dominant group”. Yet, as human beings, diversity is part of who we are. We are inherently diverse, and evidence shows that when reflecting on and discussing palliative care, there is no “one size fits all”.
Promoting equity and taking diversity into account is therefore not only the theme of the 18th World Congress of the EAPC but should also be at the heart of palliative care practice, organisation, research, education, advocacy and policy.
The EAPC scientific committee has called for abstracts and there are categories which include volunteering, informal and formal caregivers, and bereavement, among others.
Abstract submission must fit into their strict criteria. More information can be found on their website.
Deadline for abstract submission is 15 October 2022.
