My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care Inc, Houston, TX, USA
I am so thankful to IAHPC for the traveling scholarship to attend the ALCP Congress 2018 in Santiago, Chile.
During the congress, I met people from all over Latin America working in Palliative care. It was amazing to share stories of our challenges and victories in the process of developing effective programs in our own countries. I was encouraged by the dynamic speakers who shared real life experiences, addressing the humanistic approach to handling the challenges of dealing on a daily basis with terminal illness, especially in Pediatric care. I left the conference with renewed strength to face the challenges, equipped with new tools to teach and advance education, and with lots of new ideas to implement.
Working diligently for years to open a Hospice facility in my country, I was able to visit a facility and spend invaluable time getting to know the administrators and staff that run a local hospice, Clinica Familia, in Chile. They openly shared their knowledge and experiences with me, and I now have new insights on how to make my vision a reality.
