Exposing medical students to palliative care, we are glad to say, has started happening in many parts of the country.
Considering that the Medical Council of India (MCI) still has not included palliative care in the curriculum, it is only these individual initiatives that seem to be happening; but Pallium India is very happy that our efforts are showing results, even though progress is slow.
We are partnering with Ganga Prem Hospice in Rishikesh to spread the message of palliative care across the state of Uttarakhand.
See the fruit of one of their efforts: More than 40 medical students are learning palliative care. Hurray!
