Dear Congress Participant,

We are delighted to invite you to the 17th World Congress of the EAPC in Helsinki, Finland, from 20-22 May 2021.

All of us are experiencing growing demand, changing practice, and increasing challenges to the delivery of palliative care.  The 17th World Congress “Exploring New Dimensions” will give you the opportunity to be re-energised; to hear about exciting innovations and progress from within our palliative care community, as well as valuable contributions from the wider services and communities with whom we work…
