"IAHPC Library is absolutely critical"

Thank you for your generous donation through the GlobalGiving website to the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) “Library Access to Hospice Care Workers Worldwide” project.  Your donation 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.
