Project Hamrahi Meets in Melbourne
Pioneered by Dr Odette Spruyt, the project organizes mentoring visits of at least a week each every year of an experienced palliative care specialist in Australia with a palliative care service in India, envisaging continued support. So far, the program has been a huge success.The 30th of April saw a review meeting of the project held at Melbourne. The mentors came together for sharing experiences, and for identifying strengths and weaknesses of the project and making suggestions for future strategy.
Dr Rosalie Shaw, the former executive director of Asia Pacific Hospice Network (APHN) was present at the meeting and it was good for all participants to draw from her experience.
