How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

This is my first time attending EAPC conference. I met many palliative workers from all around the worlds and had made new friendships with them. From this event, I get to know:  1) The progress of development of paediatric palliative care in whole world, and reminding me to work harder to improve our care in my country, 2) Get new ideas of research topics that I can conduct or involve. 3) The passion of other palliative worker and that had motivate me to continue my journey in this field

How will you new knowledge & acquired skills help in furthering your work in hospice and palliative care in your program/city/ or country?

It is definitely helpful in 1) Drawing a development plan for paediatric palliative care in my country, especially community paediatric palliative supports, 2) Get link to other palliative expertise in order to work up conjoint research and education programme, 3) Get more other’s experiences in term of negotiating with policy makers and promoting paediatric palliative care to colleagues and society, 4) Be more confident in practicing evident-based medicine in palliative care, 5) Fulfill my dream to share my experience in poster presentation
