Tamil Nadu is putting all its efforts to integrate palliative care into their healthcare system. They are now training their nurses from five districts. These nurses, being the most vital members in a multidisciplinary team, are here at our Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS) for the six weeks course which began on May 15.

We thank Tamil Nadu NHM mission director Dr Darez Ahmed IAS, Dr Jerard M Selvam DD (NCD), Dr Jayashree (State Program Co-ordinator -NPPC), Dr Abhijith Jose (Consultant) and the entire team for this initiative and for setting a model for all other states.
