The Fellowship in Palliative Care Program has been adjudged as the best leadership capacity building program worldwide and won the ‘Leadership in Education Award 2021’ by the European Association of Palliative Care (EAPC) and European Palliative Care Academy (EUPCA).
The Fellowship in Palliative Care is an advanced course run by the Institute of Palliative Medicine (IPM), Calicut, India, in partnership with Sanjeevan Palliative Care Project, Pondicherry, India, St Christopher’s Hospice, London, United Kingdom, and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Bangladesh.
The six month course is designed as a distance education program with contact sessions based on principles of adult learning and is conducted through IPM at the request of WHO as part of its designation as a WHO Collaborating Centre for Community Participation in Palliative Care and Long-term Care. The program aims to deliver a quality training program that is affordable to participants from low- and middle-income countries. 136 delegates from 43 countries participated in the recently concluded Palliative Care Fellowship.
Dr. Libby Sallnow, Senior Clinical Academic at St Christopher’s, and Palliative Care Consultant at Central and North West London NHS Trust, UK, accepted the award on behalf of the team at the virtual EAPC conference held earlier this month.
Congratulations to the team!
