Name of Meeting/Event/Activity: Allied Health Postgraduate Research Conference 2019 (AHPGR)
Origin: Bandung, Indonesia / Destination: Nongkhai, UK
This conference was held by the Postgraduate Representative team of the School of Health Sciences the University of Nottingham, UK. The conference had empahised on the importance of improving collaboration between academic, practice and policy makers, particularly in health care services. I have opportunities to gain new insights from other scholars about how to improve my personal and professional capacity in conducting research. I also have chances to expanding professional network to support my future career in my home country. Through this conference, I also shared my knowledge and suggestions about the urgency of improving end of life care in current health care practice and learning.
I realised that as a researcher, I need to be more actively participate and deliberately enhance my contributions in the global palliative care and end of life care learning forum. I hope that my research findings will illuminate the needs of creating a more structured end of life care education for nursing students particularly in developing countries.
The IAHPC Travelling Scholarship considers as one of the best funding sources which beneficials in advancing my knowledge and skills in palliative care and end of life care. It would be a great for IAHPC to improve the information sharing method about the availability of funding support, and expanding collaborations with health care practice and educational institutions worldwide.
