JIPMER set to focus on specialised palliative care

Puducherry's renowned medical school JIPMER (Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research) is all set to structure a specialized course in palliative care. The school has recently tied up with the Calicut-based Institute of Palliative Medicine(IPM) as well as Sri Aurobindo Society in an "integral end of life care" project called Sanjeevan. The partnership resulted in the first 'sensitisation course', a one-day programme on palliative care, for JIPMER's nursing staff on Saturday.

"Next week we will begin the discussions with IPM, Sri Aurobindo Society and other collaborators on structured courses for palliative care," said Dr T S Ravikumar, director, JIPMER. "We will have another programme on palliative care in the first week of February - it will either be a similar one like today or a programme on advanced sensitization - and we will take it from there on."

The course, when introduced, will also take inputs from global syllabi on palliative care. "There are courses available in the US and Australia for example on palliative care and we will use our learning from those as well," said Kumar. "The course on palliative care will be part of a larger footprint on Advanced Illness Management (AIM)," he added.

To that end, JIPMER will also seek inputs from international institutions like the Harvard School of Public Health with which it already has an MoU. "The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre in the US has one of the strongest palliative care units in the world," said Kumar. "We are inviting some of the faculty from there to collaborate with us on this to harness what success they have had and see what JIPMER can contribute," he added.
