Major Step Forward for Pediatric Palliative Care

2011 December 8

Thursday, the 8th of December 2012 was a special day for Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS), the flagship of Pallium India.

Pediatric Palliative Care Clinic at SAT Hospital

In collaboration with the Department of Pediatrics in S.A.T Hospital at the Government Medical College, Trivandrum, and the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (Trivandrum branch), we started a trial run of a weekly Pediatric Palliative Care Clinic based at S.A.T Hospital.

Dr Lalitha Kailas (Head of Pediatrics), Dr Elizabeth (Superintendent of S.A.T Hospital), Dr Mohammed Kunju, (Head of Pediatric Neurology and President of Indian Academy of Pediatrics) give leadership to the program, while Dr Kalpana and Dr Hariprasad will be directly in charge of patient care from the part of the Government Institution.

The Pallium India team will be led by Dr Sithara Raman, the pediatrician in the Pallium India team.

It is a privilege to work with children. We are glad we have the opportunity.
