Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care


One way in which the Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care Program achieves our vision of getting all patients access to the quality, research-based palliative care they need is though our many collaborations.

International Collaborations

Collaborations with the international community are synergistic endeavors in our mission to implement and improve palliative and end-of-life care throughout the world. The EPEC team has collaborated with healthcare professionals to teach and implement palliative care practices in numerous countries, including Lebanon, Jordan, Georgia, Moldova, India, and Saudi Arabia.

Although our efforts to provide critical training and implement effective palliative care strategies are crucial parts of this exchange, these international partnerships also provide valuable insights about the philosophy and practice of palliative care in other cultures and countries.
