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.

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.
