Palliative care pioneer and Pallium India’s long-time supporter Gilly Burn brought a tour of 12 palliative care nurses and one retired physician to Pallium India’s institute at Trivandrum (TIPS) to learn more about the innovative strategies used to deliver palliative care in a environment where access to opioids have been relatively recently introduced.
The group went on home visits and attended team rounds on the inpatient unit. They met with Dr Rajagopal, Chairman of Pallium India, for a robust question and answer period afterwards. Their heartfelt commitment to the mission of Pallium India was clear from the supplies that they donated for the bereavement summer camp for children.
Thank you, Gilly and the international palliative care supporters. It means a great deal that you stopped by!
