Review for International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care Inc, Houston, TX, USA
My name is Natalia Carafizi and I'm a specialist in palliative care from Chisinau, the Republic of Moldova.
I am most grateful to the IAHPC for the provided Travel Scholar Fellowship to attend the 16-th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care held in Berlin, Germany on May 23 – 25, 2019. It allowed me to present the poster entitled “Initiating the Development of Palliative Care Service in Transnistria”, which describes the activities, related to the development of palliative care through all the regions of Moldova, even those with the existed political and economical particularities.
I also felt very honorable to take part in the pre-Congress PACED session, which first time in the history of the EAPC Congresses took place and aimed the unification of the ex-USSR countries, where the current status of palliative care in each country apart was discussed, alongside with the existed barriers and options to overcome them.
The presented at the Congress scientific information was quite modern, either to be implemented into the daily clinical practice together with colleagues, to be shared with the local National Association for Palliative Care to use for development of further strategies or to be taken into account while improving medical curricula for both medical students and nurses.
I am very grateful to the IAHPC for giving me this wonderful opportunity, without which my attendance of the Congress and the gained experience would have never been possible.
