The 2013 Conference was held in Limerick, Ireland March 25-27.


Almost 250 delegates from over 30 different countries gathered in Limerick, Ireland in April to attend the 3rd International Public Health and Palliative Care Conference.  

The Conference, hosted by Milford Care Centre and The University of Limerick, in association with The Irish Hospice Foundation was a great success.  Keynote speakers included Professor Allan Kellehear, Professor Luc Deliens, Dr Bruce Rumbold, Dr Kathleen McLoughlin and Nigel Hartley. Models of practice were shared in parallel sessions, highlighting the diversity of approaches in the field of Public Health and Palliative Care.  

A public health approach to palliative care places the community at the centre of supporting those affected by death, dying, loss and care.
