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. 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.

IANPCs 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.
