Celebrating International Nurses’ Day Online: Integrating palliative care in all nursing care

May 12, 2019, 3:00 PM to 4: 30 PM

Nurses care.
They dispense comfort, compassion and care.
Often, they make more difference to human lives than any other health care professional.

Palliative nursing provides relief from pain and other suffering, and provides mental, social and spiritual well-being to individuals with life-limiting illnesses, and to their family.

The concept is gradually changing. Palliative care is no longer limited to certain incurable diseases; it is not only end-of-life care. Today, palliative care encompasses relief from all serious health-related suffering.

Palliative care nurses need to be empowered more than ever: to satisfy this growing need, for helping health care nurses to integrate principles of palliative care in their practice and to transmit enough nursing expertise to families and to volunteers.

Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS), a WHO Collaborating Centre created by Pallium India Trust, is organizing an online forum on International Nurses Day (May 12, 2019) to discuss and share experiences on how palliative care nurses can keep abreast with recent advances and learn to help nurses across all health care fields to integrate principles of palliative care.
