How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

The Latin American Virtual Conference on Palliative Care ALCP 2021, which took place on Saturday March 27 with its slogan "The Transformation of the Art of Caring" has been very favorable for our palliative care teams in Latin America. Among the 10 most punished countries worldwide we have several in Latin America and in this academic day, we achieved, through having the best references in palliative care, a successful contextualization in three fundamental axes such as: The challenges, the perspectives of gender and the impact on the mental health of health professionals. This helps us to take preventive actions and prepare for what follows in the context of this pandemic that puts us before one of life's greatest challenges. Martha Lucia Franco G. Executive director ASOCUPAC- Palliative Care Association of Colombia
