EAPC 2023 presentation

The European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) 2023 Congress in Rotterdam

In June, Globalizing Palliative Care project members Hanum Atikasari and Natashe Lemos Dekker attended the 18th European Association for Palliative Care congress in Rotterdam. Lemos Dekker presented the preliminary results of the project’s case studies in Brazil and Indonesia.

In this presentation we have demonstrated that community-based initiatives reveal how local values are included in the development and practice of palliative care. Furthermore, we discussed how such programs build on existing local health care structures, while also incorporating practices derived from global trainings, and results in an increasing awareness of palliative care.
