“Palliative care has for long been seen as the last resort for terminally-ill cancer patients, a misconception that unfortunately skews public perception, according to Dr Mallika Tiruvadanan, consultant doctor, Lakshmi Pain and Palliative Care Centre.”

Please read the article on the poor access to palliative care in our country by Gokul Nair in The New Indian Express.
