A countdown to #EAPC2019 – 16th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care

Last week in Berlin, the Scientific and Local Organising Committees of the 16th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) met to plan for next year’s world congress. Sébastien Moine and Anne Letsch, on behalf of the Scientific and Local Organising Committees, remind you that it’s only 155 days to go!

With an eventful year coming to an end, we send special greetings from #EstrelBerlin – the Estrel Hotel and Convention Center in Berlin, a great venue for #EAPC2019 – where we recently met to plan next year’s 16th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care.

The Scientific Committee (SCi-COM) of #EAPC2019 worked intensely, rating more than 1,400 abstracts for #EAPC2019 and preparing an inspiring programme with 25 different free communication sessions. We express our heartfelt appreciation to all authors and to all reviewers, who did a great job. Congratulations to all speakers chosen for the free communication sessions and poster presenters, who were  announced last week.

Please visit the congress website to get an overview of what’s planned so far. Following the congress theme, ‘Global Palliative Care — Shaping the future’, leading researchers and practitioners from India, New Zealand, Rwanda, Switzerland and the United Kingdom will explore how palliative care fits with the current global health agenda.

Countdown to Berlin …

The end of the year is for many of us a time to focus our expectations for the year ahead – don’t forget to mark your calendar for 2019!

There are only 13 days left till 2019 – only 58 days left to benefit from the ‘Early bird’ registration… and only 155 days left till #EAPC2019 starts in Berlin from 23 to 25 May 2019.

Use the time at the end of the year to tell colleagues and friends about #EAPC2019. Register now and benefit from reduced rates, book your travel and accommodation at #EstrelBerlin or other #HotelsBerlin and set aside some time to #visitberlin. Join us in Berlin at #EAPC2019 and celebrate with us the diversity of Global Palliative Care.

Things are hotting up for the Sci-Com and the Local Organising Committee as we prepare for the congress and hope for both a unique scientific and Berlin experience.

We wish all of you a very happy new year 2019 and very much look forward to welcoming you at #EAPC2019 in Berlin.
