The European Journal of Palliative Care (EJPC) was established in 1994 to provide an information and communication resource for all professionals involved in the provision of palliative care across Europe. The EJPC is an official journal of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) and, as such, serves to keep members and non-members alike up to date on the key activities, goals and strategic direction of the EAPC.
The EJPC publishes mainly review articles related to the ever-increasing provision of palliative care, but it also welcomes relevant original research papers where appropriate. Published bimonthly, it is designed to be of direct and practical relevance to the diverse range of individuals involved in palliative care. The journal aims to help them develop their skills and broaden their knowledge base, by covering all aspects of the care of patients suffering from advanced, incurable disease. One regular feature is ‘The case study masterclass’.
The current issue is available as a PDF, EPUB for your iPad or smartphone, and Kindle (click here for help with loading the issue to your Kindle). You can also browse back issues to the left, or search the archive to the right.
The EJPC is only available on subscription. Click on the personal or institutional links to the right to find out more.
