INPCS is about human connections in neurology, breaking silos between traditional medical walls, and keeping the person who is ill at the center of all of the efforts. The overarching purpose of the International Neuropalliative Care Society (INPCS) is to foster the growth of this field by creating a community. Activities of INPCS include building professional networks, supporting research, developing educational materials and opportunities, creating guidelines for clinical practice, and advocacy.
There is currently no other society dedicated to promoting this field in its full extent. INPCS differs from special interest groups within other societies in being solely focused on the promotion of neuropalliative care. Our society recognizes that the optimal growth of this field will be interdisciplinary (no other society embraces the full spectrum of disciplines involved in neuropalliative care); international (no other society embraces the concept that we need to learn from different models of care); person-centered (no other society invites persons living with these disorders and their families to have an equal seat at the table); and equally embracing of specialty and primary neuropalliative care (no other society is working on promoting both primary and specialty neuropalliative care models of care and integration into education across disciplines).
