Amy LimWhat competencies must a palliative care professional acquire? Just a treasure of knowledge and skills?  Or also the attitude – respect, compassion and empathy?
This was one of the matters that came up for discussion at the annual meeting of the Asia Pacific Hospice Conference in Bangkok from 11-13, 2103.

Ms Amy Lee, a hospice nurse from Singapore who had won the 2010 Humanity award for “Angelic Deeds” summed it up: “We have carelessly allowed much of our heads to take up our hearts. Being sensitive to the feeling of our patients is he very core essence of palliative care.”
