Through Voices4Care, All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC) is committed to having the views of people with palliative care needs and their families at the heart of what we do. We work with a range of hospices, health and social care organisations and universities across the island of Ireland. Palliative care focusses on helping a person with a life-limiting illness to achieve the best quality of life as their illness progresses.
Joining Voices4Care will give you the chance to influence palliative care education, research, policy and practice.
If you are a person with palliative care needs, a carer, or a citizen interested in improving palliative care, we want to hear from you.
Members will have meaningful opportunities to influence and shape palliative care in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
