EU Funded Projects

The Team

Organisations and people without whom this would not be possible

The NursEduPal@IMPACT international consortium consists of academic educational institutions and organisations representative of the major settings where palliative care is provided (home care, elderly home facility, hospital, and hospice). Through this Community of Practice we will engage with diverse groups of individuals, including people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds and with different learning styles, and capture their unique needs and preferences in the context of the project objectives.

Each partner has specific responsibilities in the project, but all teams work together for all work packages and have shared responsibilities and ownership.
