Pallium India in collaboration with PalliCovidKerala and Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) has started a free online training course ‘PalliCovid ECHO programme on palliative care for healthcare professionals treating people with Covid-19.’
The objective of this program is to empower healthcare professionals treating people with advanced COVID-19 to relieve the suffering of patients and families.
This program is not intended to make the participants palliative care experts; but rather to-
- Empower them to manage people with advanced Covid19 with palliative care practices that are appropriate to the Indian setting.
- Reduce the sense of helplessness of the staff and improve their work-satisfaction and morale.
- Significantly lessen the burden on the health care system
