Welcome to the International Association of Nurses in Palliative Care

The aim of The International Association of Nurses in Palliative Care (IANPC) is to promote equity of access to high-quality palliative care for people with advanced progressive disease regardless of diagnosis or place of care.

Its objectives are to:

  • Promote palliative nursing education through the provision of educational events
  • Inform palliative care strategies, policies and systems of care
  • Share good practice through a dedicated website and an electronic newsletter
  • Enable all nurses to provide optimal palliative care to people and their families when they are their most vulnerable.

Members are qualified nurses who have an interest in the provision of good-quality palliative and end-of-life care for all those in their care. Membership is open to nurses of all grades working across all clinical areas as well as those with a full or partial education remit.
