WHO CC Fieldwork from April to October, 2018

Dr. Andreas Stähli is currently conducting an ethnographic fieldwork in Eastern-Europe and Central-Asian countries to enquire about the structures of post-graduate palliative care education and explore the needs for further developments. The fieldwork data will be iterative: consisting of fieldwork diary and notes, results of structural questionnaire and semi-structured interview data.

The first field impressions from Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan are encouraging.

Dr.Taalaigul Sabyrbekova from Kirgiztan comments on this WHO CC activity: “You are doing a very important and needed job.”
