Palliative Care Policy Development Award

In 2013, the European Journal of Palliative Care (EJPC), in collaboration with the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC), launched the EJPC Palliative Care Policy Development Award, which goes to an individual who has made a substantial contribution to policy development through their research, clinical practice or as policy activist, in any country or region in the world.

We ask palliative care professionals to nominate a peer who they think deserves to have their contribution recognised.

Nominated individuals are then judged by a joint EJPC-EAPC panel based on:
- The degree of their involvement in the policy development
- The multidisciplinary nature of the policy
- The impact of the policy on patient and family care.
