EAPC 18th World Congress

15 June 2023 - 17 June 2023

After two years and three online congresses (one World Congress and two Research Congresses), it is our pleasure to announce that we are doing all the arrangements to have an in-person congress. The beautiful city of Rotterdam and the amazing convention centre De Doelen will welcome and host all of us in what it is expected to be a very exciting congress. Under the theme “Equity and Diversity in Palliative Care”, the 18thWorld Congress of the EAPC will draw attention to the utmost need and goal of creating equity of fair access, opportunity, and advancement in palliative care for all people in need of this care. 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 congress will give us all the opportunity to reconnect and share all the exiting work that is being developed within our worldwide palliative care community. It offers all of us the amazing chance to meet colleagues and friends, to be inspired and inspire others, and to re-energise ourselves to face the future challenges for palliative care.
