I started my Master of Public Health at the University of Chile in 2012. After having worked for several years as physiotherapist in several primary health care centers, providing cardiothoracic and musculoskeletal therapy for chronic patients and palliative care for advanced cancer patients, I decided to develop my skills in the management of health care programs. In 2014 I started working at the Ministry of Health of Chile, in two departments, mainly developing occupational health programs and national emergency plans. During the master I participated in other investigations related to cancer, which added to my experience in palliative care which became my key research area.
Investigating symptoms and quality of life of cancer patients admitted to palliative care, combining instruments for symptom assessment in Chilean and Danish cancer patients (PhD project)
