New e-learning course developed for Indian palliative care

Dr Nagesh Simha - Karunashraya Hospice, Bengaluru, India


I’m delighted that at the 23rd conference of the Indian Association of Palliative Care we have just released a twenty module e-resource on palliative care. This is a collaboration between Cardiff Palliative Care Education, ecancer and Bangalore Hospice Trust, Karunashraya.

These modules about one hour in duration on various subjects of palliative care including the basics of palliative care, symptom management, communication skills, psycho-social issues and so on and so forth, will give an opportunity for any person to understand the fundamentals of palliative care. This is not only for doctors but can be useful for nurses, social workers and volunteers. I am certain that this will be an excellent resource to whet the appetite of people who are interested in knowing what this important subject is all about. I urge you honestly to have a look at these modules and I am certain that it will help you in your journey of learning palliative care.
