Pressemitteilung zum «EAPC-Atlas 2013»

The European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) has promoted the «EAPC Atlas of Palliative Care in Europe» that will be presented for first time at the Congress of Palliative Care, held in Prague from the 30th May to 2nd June 2013. Researchers from an EAPC Task Force led by Professor Carlos Centeno at University of Navarra (Spain) and Professor David Clark at the University of Glasgow (UK), have coordinated this international study.   

The Atlas offers a global vision of the services, policies and strategies aimed at improving the end of life attention provided in the 53 countries that make up the European Region of the World Health Organization (WHO). The information presented in the maps suggests that there is a relationship between the establishment of palliative care programmes and the Human Development Index (HDI) or other indicators related to national expenditure on health. The Atlas also contains detailed reports on palliative care in each country that is based on information updated in 2012.
