Camilo Meneses Cortés

Travel date: September 17, 2017

Name of Meeting/Event/Activity: 5th International Public Health & Palliative Care Conference

Origin: Santiago, Chile / Destination: Ottawa, Canada

How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

I learnt a lot of how the system works in Canada and another regions, so I’m being able to take those experiences and knowledge to my country, in order to work towards develop the palliative care in my country.

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

They gave me a lot of ideas to develop the work in my country as a system and also in the daily work with the patients, getting more skills and knowledge about how is the best ways to treat and work with my patients. Now I am one of the people in my country with experience in another countries and with knowledge on the topics presented in the conference, and that makes me able to work and give ideas about which is the direction that we have to point to develop our system.

How IAHPC Traveling Scholars Program be improved in order to help other future traveling scholars?

One way can be improve the time of response, because the time between the notice of the earned scholarship and the conferences is short, so the plane tickets and accommodation gets more expensive.
