The Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN) is pleased to announce that the Cynthia Goh Award Program will henceforth be part of our biennial Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Conference (APHC). The goal of this program is to recognise individuals that promote the development of palliative care within their regions or around the world.
The Objectives of this Program
Individuals will be recognised for this award if they have:
contributed to building capacity, advancement and provision of palliative care
dedicated selflessly to promoting and supporting the alleviation of pain and suffering from life-limiting illnesses of patients and their families in order to improve their quality of life
One award will be presented onsite at each APHC unless otherwise stated due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. global pandemic resulting in a virtual conference). The award comprises of:
Fully paid attendance to the APHC of that year including economy airfare, hotel lodging and registration fees
One year of APHN individual membership
15 minutes to present an acceptance speech at the APHC of that year
The APHN Executive committee will evaluate the applications and select the best nominations. The winner will be selected based on the information provided in the application. The committee will be evaluating based on the nominee's work to advance palliative care provision, education, research, and service provision in the community, country or abroad.
Candidates must be nominated by an APHN member. No self-nominations are allowed.
