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
