The Indian Association of Palliative Care (IAPC) is celebrating this year’s World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD) with a special publication, ‘Unveiling the Unseen: Spotlighting the Heroes Behind the Scenes!’. The initiative aims to spotlight and unveil the backbones of several Palliative Care teams / units who work silently and tirelessly behind the scenes.
Through this initiative, the IAPC wishes to broaden the narrative of this year’s WHPCD theme, ‘Compassionate Communities: Together for Palliative Care’, by taking a step towards recognising and strengthening the spirit of compassionate communities at our own workplaces and within our teams.
‘Unveiling the Unseen: Spotlighting the Heroes Behind the Scenes!’ is a tribute to these unsung heroes, the administrators, the non-clinicians and the support teams from various PC teams, who through their creativity, brilliance, dedication and perseverance, help their teams to work efficiently and reach their goals, all while staying in the shadows.
Note: While the IAPC acknowledges that there are innumerable heroes and champions out there, this publication only represents the submissions received in response to the IAPC’s invitation to celebrate such Heroes.
