amazingworkMore than 20 experts including one each from UK (Max Watson), USA (Jo Eland) and Germany (Jochen Beckel- Ebel), and from various parts of the country got together for four full days at Trivandrum to sit around a few tables and work on palliative care curricula for India.

Many of the participants paid for their own travel and came. The event was organized by Pallium India in collaboration with the Institute of Palliative Medicine at Calicut and the Indian Association of Palliative Care (IAPC).

During the first day and a half, it was more of a learning process, led by Dr Vinod Shah and Dr Anparasi from Vellore, about the principles of e-learning. Bearing the principles in mind, under the leadership of Dr Max Watson, three groups worked together and separately, to create curricula for undergraduate medical and nursing curricula, for a trainer’s program, and for training for physicians to empower them to manage pain and to lead a “Recognized Medical Institution” (RMI) for the same.

Thank you each and every one for making this possible. The work will now continue over email and we expect the documents to be complete by end of July 2013.
