World Hospice and Palliative Care Day 2015


World Hospice and Palliative Care Day 2015 is an international day to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care. This year it is held on Saturday 10 October 2015 and the theme is “Hidden Lives, Hidden Patients”.

The theme focuses on patients who often struggle to access palliative care. This includes: children, indigenous community, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) individuals, prisoners, soldiers and those living in rural settings. For more information see The World Hospice Palliative Care Alliance website.
