The Association

The Association for Palliative Medicine of Great Britain and Ireland (APM) is one of the world’s largest representative bodies of medical/healthcare professionals practicing or interested in palliative care, with a growing membership of over 1,200. We welcome international members.

• Full and Associate membership is open to doctors and non-doctors practicing or interested in palliative medicine
• Student membership is open to undergraduate medical students
We work in strategic alliance with those who can contribute to achieving our vision, supporting our values and delivering our aims.

The APM represent you, our members, to ensure that your voice is heard and that you are represented in all areas relative to Palliative Medicine practice (e.g. legal, political, training, economic and workforce), as well as many other issues, including continually changing topical national debates and important matters such as assisted dying, palliative care funding, clinical nutrition and hydration, assisted ventilation and Palliative Medicine Training.
