How was this meeting/activity helpful to you?

IT WAS VERY USEFUL TO IMPROVE TEAMWORK AND PATIENT ATTENTION

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

I FEEL ENCOURAGED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT RESEARCH. THERE ARE FEW PLACES THAT DO PHYSICAL HOME CARE IN CHILDREN. I BELIEVE THAT OUR EXPERIENCE CAN SERVE OTHER TEAMS

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

I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR ECONOMIC AID AND CALIDA ATTENTION

Narrative summary highlighting the needs and challanges you face

ARGENTINE'S PUBLIC HEALTH IS IN CRISIS. THE HUMAN RESOURCE IS THE BEST IT HAS. OUR UNIT OF PALLIATIVE CARE IS UNIQUE FOR ITS INTERDISCIPLINARY WORK AND DOMICILIARY ATTENTION. WE NEED TO LEARN A LOT ON RESEARCH IN PALLIATIVE CARE BUT WE DO NOT HAVE THE ECONOMIC RESOURCES TO DO IT
