In 2021, the EAPC blog had readers in 181 countries across the world and it had over 95,000 views. This fantastic achievement is only possible because of the generosity of the palliative care community, who are willing to write for the blog to share their research, clinical practice and opinions.  We also have a great Editorial Team, who peer review each blog, ensuring we publish high quality content.  We want to say a huge thank you to all our authors, Editorial Team… and to you, our readers, for making the EAPC blog such a trusted and informative resource.

We would also like to pay tribute to the hard work of Avril Jackson, who retired in January 2022.  Avril founded the blog in 2012 and she was instrumental in shaping it to what it is today – a blog internationally recognised for its diverse and topical content on palliative care. Thank you, Avril!

Without further ado, here are the 20 top viewed blogs from 2021, listed in alphabetical order. Click on the title to read more…
