Description:
This directory of hospice and palliative care services in Ireland is published by the Irish Association for Palliative Care. Over the past decade, we have witnessed enormous growth in the development of specialist hospice and palliative care services, heralding a new and exciting era in modern health care provision. In 1995 the Medical Council included Palliative Medicine amongst its list of recognised specialties. Traditionally, hospice services have been most closely associated with the care and support that is offered to patients with advanced cancer. In more recent times, the focus has broadened to include the care of patients with other advanced and progressive, but non-cancerous conditions. Hospice teams, working in close collaboration with established in-patient and community based services, seek to ensure that all patients and those close to them, receive an optimal level of care and support. The Irish Association for Palliative Care is committed to the continued appropriate development of hospice services in all areas of the country. The publication of this directory, which details all of the established services and summarises the range of their activities, is an important facet of the work of the association. We wish to ensure that all health care professionals, health boards, voluntary and charitable bodies and members of the general public, will have ready access to information on hospice services in their own region.
