And thank you Odette
Dr Odette Spruyt who heads the Palliative Care Department at Peter McCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia, has been a friend of palliative care in India for about 15 years. Pallium India had a gift of more than one month of her time. She came with her delightful family – Alan, a lawyer, who is a key functionary in “Australasian Palliative Care Link International” and her sons Joseph and Gabriel. She spent a week teaching at the first 6 weeks’ course at our new collaboration – the palliative care training centre at Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Centre at Jaipur and also gave us three weeks at Trivandrum, teaching, planning Hamrahi program and research activities and generally making things happen. Thank you Odette, for being a partner.
