Palliative Care has never been more important than in this gruelling time of COVID-19.

16 palliative care experts got together in Kerala to form an informal task force (PallicovidKerala) to develop guidelines for integration of palliative care with Covid-care.

PallicovidKerala’s Palliative Care in COVID19- Resource Toolkit for Low and Middle Income Countries: E-Book (version 3) is aimed at health care professionals in their tireless battle against the pandemic. This document is the product of valuable inputs and discussion among national and overseas faculty.

The e-book has been submitted to Kerala Government’s expert advisory group on COVID-19 for their consideration.

Thank you PallicovidKerala for the phenomenal and hard work.

The E-book was updated in May 2020 and the updated version is available here.
