The 11th EAPC World Research Congress 2020 is moving Online

For the first time in our history, the EAPC congress will be available online. The purpose-built Online Congress platform will be accessible to all delegates from wherever they live across the globe. Speakers and abstract authors will be able to share and debate their research findings with other researchers, academics, clinicians and other key colleagues in a timely manner to maximise the impact of their work and inform further research.

New online format enables you to watch all the parallel sessions…

All of the invited speakers, oral abstract presenters and accepted poster abstract submitters have been invited to share their research at the rescheduled event. In addition we will be putting out a call for late-breaking abstracts related to the palliative care response to the COVID-19 pandemic, further details will follow. As always, there will be a published abstract book and a detailed programme to guide delegates through the congress. This online format means you will no longer miss any of the parallel presentations that may have previously been running concurrently on the programme. Moreover, you can watch recorded presentations and browse the posters at a time that suits you.

In these unprecedented times, like many other organisations, the EAPC has been adversely impacted by the unexpected arrival of the coronavirus.  We rely heavily on our congresses for our sustainability.  We really hope that you will be happy with this solution of ensuring that the whole congress will go ahead and that the EAPC will be able to continue working as a strong voice in palliative care in Europe. We would like to thank the Scientific Committee for their work on the programme and also for their flexibility in embracing this new format for the congress. This will see the programme that they helped to develop being brought to fruition. This will ensure that the programme they helped to develop is brought to fruition.

The EAPC World Research Congress always offers the opportunity to showcase world experts in palliative care and their research. Global interest in research in palliative care is increasing and now, more than ever, during these strange times, more than ever, the coronavirus and its serious consequences have led to both challenges and opportunities for the palliative care community. The work of our small speciality has been highlighted in the management of patients with advanced COVID-19.

As for previous EAPC congresses, we plan to publish a selection of posts from plenary speakers ahead of the 11th EAPC World Congress 2020 Online – keep tuned to www.eapcnet.wordpress.com for some stimulating content. We look forward to welcoming you to the 11th EAPC World Research Congress 2020 Online.
