Clinic-in-a-Box – a milestone in palliative care nursing in Indonesia

Categories: Education.

This is part of Rachel House’s hope of training a new generation of nurses equipped with palliative care and homecare skills, to ensure the availability and accessibility of palliative care in Indonesia.

We are pleased to announce that on 1 October 2015, Rachel House launched its very first Clinic-in-a-Box training at University Padjadjaran (UNPAD) in Bandung.

This is an important milestone in the development of palliative care in Indonesia.

The six-week course will equip nurses in home-based palliative care skills and financial literacy, to help empower the nurses to deliver palliative care to patients living with life-limiting conditions, including those at home.

The pioneering batch of 22 participants comprises mainly lecturers from nursing faculties across West Java.

With their hearts opened and passion awakened for palliative care, these lecturers will go on to touch the lives of many young nurses in Indonesia to encourage them to be advocates for their patients.
