Mary Callaway at Open Society Foundation informs us of an interesting long-term fellowship opportunity:
This may be an excellent opportunity for our palliative care oncologists to get additional training. Although it doesn’t mention palliative care per se, it doesn’t exclude it so it may be worth responding to.
If nothing else, applications from our colleagues will draw attention to palliative care for cancer patients. I urge you to forward this announcement to our palliative care oncologists working in oncology hospitals in your countries.
Many thanks, Mary
