Shout out to peers, mentors, teachers, and educators in palliative care

Equipping teachers with best philosophy, self-help methods and teaching strategies is a part of palliative care education that needs further attention, investigation and development. Piret Paal, Researcher and coordinator at the WHO Collaborating Centre for Nursing Research and Education at the Paracelsus Medical University in Salzburg, Austria, highlights the results of a recent survey.

In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre at the Paracelsus Medical University in Salzburg, Austria and the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) launched a survey to collect information on post-graduate palliative care education. Among other central topics the survey explored the teacher’s role in palliative care education.

This EAPC blog post is to thank all peers, teachers, and educators, who break barriers and build bridges in order to advance palliative care globally.
