How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

It was a privilege and pleasure that from September 20-23, 2022 I was a participant in the 7th Public Health Care International Conference organized in Bruges, Belgium.
From the moment I got to know the program, I was impressed by the way the conference was organized in different environments in the form of a free communication workshop, plenary symposium. Participation in this event of health professionals at a very young age was something special.
Experts in the field from well-known universities presented the studies done by themselves, those who connected health with palliative care and all the actors, the patient with his family, the caregivers, the volunteers.
The special thing for me was the way of educating of the community about the care they should provide for the people within their community, the care for the caregivers of the patients.
Lecturers and participants made the activity more interesting and interactive by giving their experience and expertise.
Thank you to IAHPC for giving me the opportunity to be part of this very important and special activity.

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

As part of the KP team in my city, I will try to use all the experience and knowledge gained during this conference while working with colleagues and patients.
