Abstract

In March 1998, a European project on palliative care ethics, the Pallium project, was launched. With financial support from the European Commission, it unites 29 representatives from seven European countries (Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK) with backgrounds in ethics, philosophy, theology, history, palliative medicine, nursing, sociology and psychology. The project aims to articulate, clarify and evaluate differences in organisational, conceptual and ethical aspects of palliative care. It also seeks to bring to the surface prevailing differences in the understanding of palliative care in the belief that this will enrich debate about future development.
