My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care Inc, Houston, TX, USA
In October 2016, the IAHPC conducted a training workshop in Barbados. I am a pharmacist and I represented my country as the Chief Pharmacist for Belize. It was my first point of contact with this organization. The workshop was well organized, and a wealth of information was shared in the short time there. This is due to the exceptional organization done by the coordinating team.
I walked away from the workshop determine to ensure that our palliative care patients access the necessary pain management medications whiles ensuring that the concern for these medications to be diverted into the illicit channels are maintained in the balance. Since my return , I, along with the palliative care group for Belize, met with the Texas Palliative care group, in which we planned the 2017 training session in which a section will be allocated to the re-sensitization of the Pharmacists to the care and management of these patients.
At this October 2016 workshop, the love for these patients by those involved in their care was felt. The recognition of our reliance and dependence on God for all we do,was clearly demonstrated. I want to thanks IAHPC for inviting me and I pledge to do all that I can in my country to the advancement of their care, by ensuring access to these medications.
