“Many hospice and palliative care workers in the region are very isolated. Some are asked to run palliative care wards without any training in palliative medicine. Others are trying to set up hospice home care services with few resources. They lack textbooks. They have no journals. They have no one to ask if they run into trouble.
We hope that this website can become a resource for them, and for us all, not just as a knowledge base but also as a source of inspiration and encouragement.” ~ Dr Rosalie Shaw, former Executive Director of APHN.
