Pediatric surgeons discuss end of life care
2013 December 26
The annual conference of the Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons of Kerala at Kottayam on 22 December 2013 included a session on “Withdrawing and with-holding life support” in which Pallium India led the discussion.
This takes us one step forward in our mission to end the aggressive intensive care that is meted out to patients even when they are surely dying. We are happy to continue what we started on 24 August 2013, on the 9th anniversary of Dr Elisabeth Kubler Ross’s death.
Thank you Dr Madan Mohan for making the discussion possible, and thank you Dr Chandran, Head of Pediatric Surgery at ICH, Medical College, Kottayam and colleagues.
