The Palliative Hub
An All Ireland Gateway to Palliative Care Information
The Palliative Hub has been developed by All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC) with a number of palliative care stakeholders to act as a gateway to information and resources about palliative care on the island of Ireland.
The Palliative Hub seeks to deliver this information and resources to a number of audiences through four different components:
- The Palliative Hub - Find out more
- The Palliative Hub - Children and Young People: Find out more
- The Palliative Hub - Adult: Find out more
- The Palliative Hub - Learning Platform: Find out more
- The Palliative Hub - Professional: Find out more
The Palliative Hub was created to fill a recognised gap in the palliative care sector for dedicated websites to help people from a variety of backgrounds access and find the information and resources they need.
There is already a large amount of information for the general public on the internet but sometimes finding and accessing this information can be difficult. The concept behind both the Children and Young People Palliative Hub and Adult Palliative Hub is to link through to this information rather than replicating it. The content on the websites has been provided by professionals who have worked in palliative care for a number of years.
The Professional Palliative Hub provides online resources for health and social care professionals, researchers, educationalists and volunteers.
The Learning Platform works to underpin all three of the websites by offering an online learning environment for both the public and professional. It also offers an environment for palliative care educators including hospice education providers to host their own learning materials.
