"The importance of Palliative Care for patients with Head and Neck cancer and Hospice Care in the United Kingdom” presented at the XX1 Dental Conference of the University of Brasilia 22-25th May 2018.
As a palliative care lecturer and school co-ordinator of international activities I am very proud to say that Jessica was a student of mine from Brazil who came to study palliative care, cancer care and pain management modules within the then Faculty of Health and Social Care at the University via the Science without Borders scheme. Jessica was a student of dentistry in Brazil and embraced learning about palliative care and the hospice movement in the United Kingdom as they have no hospices in Brazil and the students all admired this model of care. Colleagues and I loved working with the students and Jessica and I have stayed in touch and this conference presentation is the result. This was the first time Jess had presented a poster.
