The second Friday in October, which this year falls on Friday 14th October 2022, is a day for raising international awareness of the need for, and work of, children’s palliative care services worldwide. Now in its 9th year, the annual campaign is known as “Hats On for Children’s Palliative Care” with the hashtag #HatsOn4CPC.
World Hospice and Palliative Care Day
World hospice and palliative care day (WHPCD) is an annual unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care for all around the world. On WHPCD we celebrate palliative care, showing the world how vital it is, and why we must make sure everyone has access, no matter where they live, who they love, what their age or their background. It is a day when we come together with our adult palliative care colleagues to celebrate palliative care.
As a global network ICPCN works with partners around the world. Some we have official MoUs with, others we are collaborating with on different programmes and projects such as our e-learning programmes and others are funders. It is not possible to list all of our partners here but we have included some.
ICPCN and it’s partner organisations (the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance (WHPCA), Palliative Care in Humanitarian Aid Situations & Emergencies – PallCHASE, and the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Foundation) are supporting those providing palliative care in Ukraine and for Ukrainians who have made it to surrounding countries.
