“Global Palliative Care – Shaping the Future” was the theme of the annual conference of EAPC in Berlin from 23-25 May 2019.

It was a complete conference. It had everything, enough from the past, and looking way forward into the future. It had something for everybody, professionals,volunteers, researchers and students.

Pallium India’s chairman, Dr M R Rajagopal, delivered the Floriani lecture instituted by the Floriani Foundation – an organization created by the late Ms Loredana Floriani. Earlier, EAPC had posted an overview of the lecture: Access to palliative care and pain relief – an imperative of Universal Health Coverage

We thank the Floriani foundation, Dr Philip Larkin, the president of EAPC and Dr Sebastien Moine and Dr Anne Letsch, the conference co-chairs for a great conference and for the privilege of being part of it.
