Welcome to the April issue of the IAHPC Newsletter with another round of great articles, reviews and news to celebrate its 21st anniversary.
Our Guest Writer of this month’s Featured Article is Professor Julia Downing, Chief Executive of the International Children’s Palliative Care Network and a board member of the IAHPC. In Telling our Story, Julia emphasizes the importance of narrative and challenges us all to think about how we ‘tell the story’ of our work. Dr. Katherine Pettus shares IAHPC’s latest advocacy activities; Martha Lucia Franco Garrido describes how an IAHPC grant is helping the Colombian Association for Palliative Care to expand the reach and impact of their work, and we celebrate the winners of the 2016 Palliative Care Network International Conference poster awards.
And, as usual, there is an exciting selection of book reviews and journal abstracts guaranteed to keep you busily reading into the early hours!
My grateful thanks to our contributors, and to everyone who has been involved in this issue of the newsletter.
All good wishes,
