Thank you for contributing to the Library Access to Hospice Care Workers Worldwide campaign.
IAHPC focuses on advancing palliative care through our educational programs.
Your donations to this campaign have assisted us to expand our programs to include advocacy webinar courses, the upcoming Global Leaders in the Advance and Development (GLAD) of Palliative Care program, Global Directory of Palliative Care Educational Programs, Opioid Price Watch, palliative care essentials and competencies as well as our traveling scholarship program.
The IAHPC educational programs reach our members throughout the world. The location of the IAHPC members are:
25.5% are located in Asia
21% in Africa
20% in North American
12% in South America
12% in Europe
5% in Central America and the Caribbean
4.5% in Oceania
Thanks to you, these educational opportunities directly affect patient care and contribute to the development of palliative care policies in our members’ countries.
Through your generous donations, the Giving Tuesday campaign has enabled IAHPC members to conduct 2,346 library searches this year. The IAHPC Library allows palliative care professionals around the world to access peer-reviewed articles from the leading experts.
Irene who is the administrator from a Palliative Care Center in Albania stated that the “IAHPC membership has had a positive impact for the entire staff and the services we offer. It (has) help(ed) us to increase the number of services and offerings (we provide) with standards and high quality. We …use this information to assist us in (our) lobbing and advocating campaigns for palliative care in our country. We have been lucky (to have) these opportunities.
From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity. Your donation has made an enormous difference.
Through your generous donations, the Giving Tuesday campaign has raised enough money to cover the cost of providing 52 people with access to the IAHPC Library for 1-year.
Richard, an IAHPC member from Kenya stated “Having access to the CINAHL Database through the IAHPC Library is absolutely critical and essential toward improving the quality, implementation, and integration of evidence-based practice into palliative care service provision in Kenya. Because I work in a large community-based organization, we do not have access to a library through an academic setting. We are able to “Google Scholar” various topics to improve our strategic planning and patient care, but so often access to those articles ranges from UD $35 to US $55 for ONE article. This is simply not in the budget for us.
I am able to access the CINAHL Database several times each week to further grow in my particular research interests, as well as provide articles for other colleagues in our organization. Access to these articles improves our provision of care, serves as motivation to integrate research from our own experience, and helps develop abstracts and articles for publication in journals as well as presentations at key international conferences and symposia. Having access to the latest research and developments in the field of palliative care also means that senior clinical staff can develop new interventions and provide continuing education opportunities for staff at our organization as well as staff from the Ministry of Health.
Because I have this access, I’m not only able to download pertinent articles, but also now store these articles … to enable subsequent organization of key palliative care innovations.”
From the entire IAHPC team, thank you for your generosity.
