Education in Palliative Care

The European face of palliative care is ever-changing and bodies such as the EAPC have a responsibility to respond appropriately. This requires vision and conviction to meet challenges. Although the outlook for future education in Europe is positive, educators need to plan for pan-European initiatives which offer the highest possible level of learning. They must first target education towards best practice principles such as self-awareness, good communication, and attention to clinical detail. Promotion of palliative care as a specialty and developing a pan-European curriculum would support this, as would integrating palliative care education as core material in all undergraduate programmes. Such initiatives as the European Summer Schools and a European masters programme in palliative care planned for the future will offer opportunity for multidisciplinary interaction, the key to successful palliative care practice.
