On July 5th , the virtual handover of the DHP Foundation Award (2nd place) by DHPV Chairman Prof. Dr. Winfried Hardinghaus to Prof. Dr. Raymond Voltz, Department for Palliative Medicine UK Cologne, and the EUPCA team took place. We are happy and proud. It was wonderful that some of our international partners participated in the online award ceremony. Thanks to all for the support.
Everything is unpacked and sorted back again… time to share some of our favorite impressions and memories from last week: what a great experience we had with European Association for Palliative Care – EAPC Vzw at the #EAPC2023 18th World Congress @De Doelen Rotterdam:

…thank you so much for all the inspirational input, discussions and get togethers – it has been good to see you face to face again :)
Finally the 18th EAPC World Congress has started and we are looking forward to meet you, to talk about our new International Master for Leadership in Palliative Care. Please check also our leadership programme. See you in a bit! :)
We are happy to announce our leadership award winner 2023 and congratulate SANAD Hospice Lebanon on their excellent “Capacity and Model Building Program” which was rewarded with this year’s award.
The program’s aim is to support and enable leaders in palliative care and their institutions to create their own palliative care service programs and improving the palliative care knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals from diverse backgrounds.
The award will be presented during the European Association for Palliative Care – EAPC Vzw Congress in Rotterdam, 15 -17 June, 2023.
Do you run an excellent leadership programme that recognises excellence & promotes leadership as an integral part of palliativecare? In that case we are looking forward to your application for our 4th Award for Palliative Care Leadership Programmes! For further information, please check our full announcement.
We were very happy to welcome the Palliative Care experts of the fourth cohort of EUPCA at the University Hospital Cologne/Germany on Monday 23th September. We started the new generation of EUPCA with experts come from 13 European countries and for the first time from three Non-European countries: Bangladesh, Iran and New-Zealand. These experts from seven different professions are being trained in leadership skills during the next 1.5 years.
Aim of this unique further education course is to prepare specialists in palliative care for prospective leadership tasks in their professional lives. The European Palliative Care Academy focuses on Personal Development, Project Management, Teamwork, Research Methods and Advocacy and supports participants to successfully implement their personal project in their region or institution.
During the first course week in Cologne all modules where introduced and the participants achieved skills primary in Project Management, tutored by Prof. Dr Raymond Voltz and Dr Christiane Kuch from Germany and in Personal Development, tutored by Prof. Dr Daniela Mosoiu and Malina Dumitrescu from Romania .
The group turned out to be a great mix from different countries, professions and backgrounds which made lively group sessions and interesting discussions possible.
We look back on a successful week and would like to thank all participants, lecturers and others involved!
