Thank you for your generous donation to the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project.

In October, the IAHPC was able to provide 10 scholarships for individuals to participate in the 17th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) which was a 3-day online event.

One of those scholarships was issued to Zee.  She stated that “attending the EAPC congress has given me the opportunity to learn from other researchers, and sparked new ideas for future research projects. I learned that collaboration with partners in future research with a strong focus on the development of palliative care services in the community is key to drive change and improvement.” 

During the congress, Zee was able to share her research with the palliative care community.  Her abstract was selected by the organizing committee which allowed her to present a poster titled “A Qualitative Study on Palliative Care Nurses’ Experiences on the Use of Subcutaneous Medications and Subcutaneous Infusions via Syringe Driver at Home.”

Scholarships such as this one, was made possible due to the donations you have given to the “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project.

From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.

Thank you for your generous donation to the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project.

This summer, the IAHPC was able to provide 3 scholarships for individuals to participate in a three-week clinical placement in Uganda. 

The clinical placement included a 2-week rotation with a hospice multidisciplinary team.  The scholars visited patients’ homes in the community and participated in hands-on bedside teaching.  The last week, the scholars participated in a “Training of Trainer” course, where they consolidated their teaching and mentoring skills.

Jamila from Ghana stated “the journey through the palliative course in Uganda was filled with great experiences amidst the era of a surge in COVID-19.   The course has broadened my knowledge on the scope of palliative care and use of technology; it also improved my research skills.”

Ruth, also from Ghana, stated “this activity was very helpful to me because it was an eye opener. I learned a lot of practical skills in palliative care. I also saw things that I have otherwise only read about in books."

This clinical placement, reported by Vince from Uganda, “helped me to appreciate different models of palliative service provision: home care, day care, outpatient, and hospital”. Armed with new knowledge, “I have designed an action plan that is aimed at provision of palliative care both for outpatients and those at home.”

These scholarships were made possible due to the donations you have given to the “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project.

From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.

Thank you for your generous donation to the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project. 

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the IAHPC was able to award 18 scholarships for our members in Central and South America to participate in the Jornada Virtual Conference sponsored by the Latin American Association of Palliative Care (ALCP) on March 27th.  

Mirian a physician from Chitre, Panama was one of those scholars. 

She is the coordinator of her palliative care team, and she stated that “home visits are an important pillar; for me, they are an art because, in a glance, I must capture problems of both the patient and their family nucleus. Sometimes we leave believing that we solved a situation, but was it the situation that needed to be solved?” 

There were several lessons that she gained through her participation in the virtual conference, such as: 

  • “Provided there is proper planning, many benefits can be achieved for patients, their families, and the team.
  • Self-care is the foundation that sustains the team, along with continuing education.
  • Structures guide our processes.
  • Being more aware of our patients and implementing a direct telephone line has decreased the rate of readmissions to the emergency room.”

We could not have provided these scholarships without the generous support from donors such as you.

From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.

Thank you for your generous donation to the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project.

As the IAHPC looks forward to 2021, we reflect on our 2020 achievements towards reducing Serious Health Related Suffering through education.

In 2020, the IAHPC hosted fourteen COVID-19 webinars covering topics such as the impact of COVID-19 on palliative care; accessing palliative care during the pandemic; palliative care for older patients in the context of COVID-19; palliative care for person’s with disabilities and in humanitarian crises; and many more.  This series had over 7,300 people throughout the world register.

The subsequent COVID-19 Resource website which housed the webinars as well as the corresponding Briefing Notes were visited by more than 8700 people globally.

We could not have achieved all the above and much more without the generous support from donors such as you.

 From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.

Thank you for your generous donation through GlobalGiving to the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) “Education Reduces Serious Health Related Suffering” project.

Over the summer the IAHPC finished the Global Palliative Care and COVID-19 Series, which was a collaborative effort of all the global palliative care organizations.  Those organizations are the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN), the Palliative Care in Humanitarian Aid Situations and Emergencies Network (PalCHASE), and the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance (WHPCA).

The Global Palliative Care and COVID-19 series conducted a total of 14 webinars which featured 58 speakers throughout the world.  Hundreds of people around the world participated in each live webinar but the series was much more far reaching than that.  The webinars were recorded and made available online extending the opportunity for many additional palliative care professionals to participate in the series.

The series also included 25 briefing notes covering each webinar topic.  The briefing notes were written by 124 experts from 27 countries.

To date, the Global Palliative Care and COVID-19 Series’ website has had over 10,000 unique pageviews

Your support has made this series possible.

From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.
