How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

This meeting was very beneficial to me for my research networking. Palliative Care is my specialty and to learn to new and updated
information on an International Level was very important .
I have been empowered to next time attend and to present at such an important conference . Covid has made social networking
possible on a large and more efficient scale and this has enabled me not to be a lonely webinar isolated researcher .

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

I will definitely implement the information in the undergraduate teaching program at the nursing college . In addition I am working
Nationally to implement palliative care guidelines for all categories of staff as well as serving on the research board.
Personally empowering me to challenge and sharpen my palliative care skills .

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

The program was very good however traveling grants as for me will allow me more time to meet with the presenter and to exchange
The webinar was great but for me at times too long - apologies we have load shedding and I could not always attend for the full
duration . Hence if I were a future travelling scholar I would not have network load shedding problems .
Thank you very much for the opportunity I have learnt and will share the information in fact I am already sharing as I teach palliative
care .
