How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

This congress allowed me to share experiences with colleagues, update my knowledge in palliative care, promote networking and the
exchange of resources between different professionals in Latin America.

The new knowledge and resources acquired will have a positive impact on the quality of my care and educational activities. It will also
