Travel date: June 9, 2016
Name of Meeting/Event/Activity: 9th World Research Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care
Origin: Mumbai, India / Destination: Dublin, Ireland
This research congress was very useful in shaping my idea into concepts. I met a lot of people doing good research in field of Palliative care in western world. Many research work were very important in using it in clinical practice. Oral presentation were very informative.
I am currently working on a project of Early palliative care in Head and Neck cancers, most prevalent cancer in India. I attended presentation by Dr Zimmerman and Dr Hannon. Both were very useful for me. Many other presentation were also good and need to be updated in our clinical practice. Palliative care in European countries is well developed, same need to be developed in our country. Need of quality research is of foremost important in evidence based medicine. I will definitely work in better research work in field of Palliative care in our institution.
