How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

This conference gave me not only evidence-based practice but also ability to be the advocate for Palliative care in the community.

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

1. I have decided to call up on political, traditional and religious leaders in the community for training as a part of advocacy.
2. I have mobilized volunteers from the community including primary health care providers to come for training on palliative.
3. I have started engaging political leaders on the issues of integrating primary health care services with palliative care.

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

IAHPC Scholarship program is a program which is giving hope and great innovation to many of us working in isolation with very few opportunities. I pray that this program must continue to give opportunity to everyone including those that have been given scholarship before without exceptional of saying those who have received scholarship can not be given in the same year.
