The World Health Organization considers training in palliative care for healthcare professionals a priority. Indeed, increased life expectancy and a high prevalence of chronic and incurable diseases further emphasise the need for well-trained healthcare professionals in palliative care. The European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) shares the concern of the WHO. Some countries, such as France and Canada, have developed national action plans to implement basic training and continued education in palliative care. In Switzerland, the ‘Manifeste de Fribourg' called for a similar action plan in palliative care training and set it as a top priority.
