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

The scholarship provided me with an added opportunity to participate in an international nursing congress activity. It facilitated me to update my knowledge with current practices from participants in their respective countries. The uniqueness of the scholarship facilitated me to attend a congress or conference of my interest. As a keynote speaker at the congress it gave me the opportunity to shared my views and on the project outcomes.

Mostly importantly, I was grateful to be part of the IAHPC as it enabled me to stay abreast with the updated evidence-based educational which served as a useful platform to stay engaged with a network of like-minded healthcare professionals who were very passionate about palliative care.
