Report: Excellence in Oncology 2010
Miss Aneeja Mariam Joseph, a Medical Social Worker from Pallium India, attended the international conference Excellence in Oncology 2010, held at Kolkata’s Cancer Centre Welfare Home and Research Institute from 10-12th December 2010.
The conference included hands-on workshop in Palliative Care for doctors, nurses, social workers and volunteers.
One of the delegates, a cancer survivor working with HITAISHINI, a voluntary group for breast cancer survivors, told after Aneeja’s session with them,
It was truly a great joy to see and meet people who are interested in palliative care.
I believe this means people are beginning to understand and accept the need for palliative care.
It’s about time things changed.
