Global Palliative Care Community Highlights
Palliative care in Uruguay
Professor Max Watson, Director of Medical and Care Services, Northern Ireland Hospice, gives his impressions of his first visit to Uruguay.
For a week in the month of April I had the privilege of visiting colleagues in Montevideo, Uruguay, to see first hand palliative care services in action across a range of settings. The trip had been arranged in collaboration with the British Embassy in Montevideo to promote the use of ECHO, Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes, in palliative care.
