In the framework of a continuing training course organized by the Societat Catalano-Baleaar de Cures Pal.liatives (web), the director of the WeCare Chair Dr. Josep Porta-Sales has received recognition on 11 May 2021 due to his prestige, contributions, and career in palliative care.
It is 35 years of professional career in palliative care that the director of WeCare has travelled. Trained at St. Christophers’ hospice in London and with a long experience as a paliativist in the Catalan Institute of Oncology, Porta-Sales has become a national and international reference to its solid clinical activity, teaching and research in the palliative care environment.
For eight years he has been director of the WeCare Chair where, together with Dr Cristina Monforte, Dr Albert Balaguer and a consolidated team of researchers, he has worked with other international referents in finding clinical solutions to alleviate the suffering of patients. All this is possible thanks to scientific rigour and teamwork, values that define WeCare.
