Representatives from major world religions and palliative care organisations have published a charter on palliative care for older persons.

Representatives from major international palliative care organisations, and the major faiths attended a meeting titled: ‘Defining the Essence of Palliative Care for Older People: Religions Together’ to draft the charter on palliative care for older persons.

The Charter recognises that: “each older person has full value and human rights, and contributes to society including when fragile and in need of care,” and sets out the barriers to older people accessing palliative care. 

You can download the Charter from the Maruzza Foundation website.
