A whole day dedicated to palliative care at NAPCON2018

2018 November 30

29 November 2018 saw a whole day’s pre-conference workshop dedicated to palliative care at Ahmedabad, prior to the National Conference on Pulmonary Diseases. As Dr Rajani Surendar Bhat pointed out quoting Victor Hugo, “Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come”. It now appears that palliative care has indeed arrived at the Pulmonary Medicine Fort.

Dr Sujeet Rajan and Dr Rajam Iyer, two pulmonologists from Mumbai took the lead in organizing a whole-day pre-conference workshop on palliative care.

The famous Dr David Currow (seen in the picture) from Australia was the star attraction.

There were talks, a panel discussion and role plays. All in all, a very satisfying day. Pallium India was privileged to be a part of it.

    Thank you for your encouragement ,constant inspiration and leadership over the years,sir. It was very gratifying for us to see so many participants engage whole-heartedly in the day’s proceedings. Bringing together pulmonologists, palliative medicine physicians, social workers, nurses, physiotherapists; this workshop was what we dreamed of – the first of many to come and Yes, in the words of Victor Hugo- Nothing can stop this idea whose time has come!
