Nurses conference smCongratulations to palliative care nurses in Kerala. Out of their own initiative, the first nurses’ palliative care conference was conducted on 22, 23 April 2016 in Kozhikode.

We hear it was a huge success. The enthusiasm of the participants went way beyond the organizers’ expectations. They had arranged a hall which could accommodate 450. Somehow, they managed to squeeze in 550, and still had to turn many away. A lot of educational programs were conducted and greedily lapped up by the participants. Pallium India’s training coordinator, Ms Sheeba Shaju, and nurse Aswathy Devadas were among the teaching faculty. They report that they themselves feel thrilled and enthused by the event.

Kudos, palliative care nurses of Kerala!
