Access to the Advocacy course "Advocating for Palliative Care in the Multilateral System" (Basic)

by Katherine Pettus, PhD. IAHPC Advocacy Officer

The purpose of this basic course is to enable and empower our members to become effective advocates so that their efforts lead to changes in policy and norms that in turn translate into concrete steps and outcomes that help alleviate Serious Health Related Suffering (SHS) of patients, families and caregivers.  The online basic course was developed by Dr. Katherine Pettus, IAHPC Advocacy Officer and it builds on her work and expertise as an advocate for palliative care.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain and discuss the basic multilateral advocacy terms and language.
  2. Identify and understand the role of the key institutions and meetings involved in palliative care advocacy.
  3. Locate and translate the multilateral documents that oblige governments to provide palliative care services in your country.
  4. Describe the basic mechanics and challenges of multilateral advocacy.
  5. Recognize the importance of partnerships and collaborations in palliative care advocacy.
