Charmaine Attard has just attended the 11th International Conference on Geriatric Nursing and Palliative Care. She was invited as a speaker during two sessions. This conference held in Amsterdam was attended by nurses, facility managers and doctors from all around the world.
Her first presentation was titled -Palliative Care offered within Simblija Care Home – a SWOT analysis and the other paper she presented was titled – Thou Shalt Not Touch. Both papers were followed by a great discussion and interaction by the audience present. It is always surprising how although Malta is so small compared to other countries and although geographically those present were from all over the world, the same issues and concerns came up. Health workers faced the same issues, facility managers had to deal with the same challenges and through discussion concerns and solutions can be shared.
