1-day Event to Further Palliative Care Education

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.
