Welcome to the IAAHPC Research and Surveys page.

With the development and expansion of the field of animal hospice and palliative care, there is an increasing need to acquire, collate and disseminate evidence-based knowledge to guide best practice in clinical and supportive care. Research is fundamental to this goal.

Below are links to current active surveys which we encourage you to participate in, and completed surveys with summaries of findings.
