e-hospice : new website for the latest in palliative care

Palliative Care Australia (PCA) and international partners have launched ehospice- the first globally managed news app and website that will deliver international news and intelligence on hospice, palliative and end of life care.

" ehospice is set to revolutionise how we access information about palliative and end of life care," said Dr Yvonne Luxford, PCA chief executive officer. "The website and app bring together the expertise and experience of the global hospice and palliative care community for the first time in one place." Online, on iPad or on their phone, readers will have access to current news, best practice, inspirational stories, jobs, events and photo galleries from around the world. It will also be a key tool to support advocacy at the national, regional and global level.

David Praill, chair of the World Palliative Care Alliance, said "ehospice is about supporting the development of the best possible care by transferring knowledge between clinicians, policy makers, hospice leaders and supporters, encouraging exploration and learning and building global partnerships."

ehospice is split into different country/regional editions, with Palliative Care Australia managing the Australian edition.
