My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care Inc, Houston, TX, USA
I want to express my gratitude for the scholarship and to assure you that the benefit of this is enourmous for those who cannot afford to pay for such a conference, but also for those from developed countries who can learn from people from poor resource countries who manage to develop services with limited resources.
This bursary allowed me to participate in the ICPCN Annual Board meeting where we established the Strategic Plan of Developement for the next 3 years, and did discuss other current organisational issues..
Also i could attend the ICPCN Conference where I did find out news in different area of PPC from prestigious lecturers. This information will help me in my practice in the care of about 160 children needing PC and I will share the news with our staff.
Another gain was the network with international community of professionals and establishing links which can be helpful for supporting each other with difficult cases, with advocacy, research, etc. I did strengthen the links with colleagues from all over the world.
I was honored that the study which we did in Hospice Casa Sperantei Brasov was accepted as an oral presentation in the section Service Delivery. So we shared from our experience which services are most needed and more efficient. The study was very welcomed and was followed by discussions in the session moderated by Joan Marston (South Africa) and Sat Jassal (UK).
In order to disseminate the knowledge received in the Conference, I will send the information from the book of abstracts to the people from our national and regional network of PPC and I will include the up-to-date information in the courses for doctors, nurses and other professionals, courses which I teach in Romania and in the surrounding countries
The process of applying for scholarship was clear and Genevieve Napier managed very well the selection process and she was always ready to assist me with my questions.
So a big thank you to IAHPC for this bursary, and I hope you will continue the good work!
