The World Health Organization defines Palliative Care as that approach which helps in improving the quality of the patients who are facing the problems related to life-threatening diseases. They further conclude that this approach can be achieved successfully by means of early identification and by treating the patients with utmost care. Touching Souls International truly believe in this statement and have taken initiative in giving training to the doctors of Bangladesh in palliative care.
A basic course in Palliative Medicine was conducted for the medical professionals in the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University from 27th March to 5th May 2011. It was a six week course. Expert doctors from Palliative Medicine, Kerala, India came for giving training to the doctors in Bangladesh. They had arranged for special training sessions where the doctors had to interact with the patients. Care is the only medicine for these patients who live under the threats of a life taking disease. The patients had opened up themselves in front of these expert professionals. The eyes that kept on shedding tears were enough to disclose their pain within the heart. They had lived every single day in fear of death that may arrive at any point of time in their lives. These doctors have acted as their saviors.
We are really thankful to the doctors of Institute of Palliative Medicine, Kerala who participated in this program and made it successful. The Director of the Institute came here as the external examiner and delivered valuable lectures on palliative care. Our mission was giving training to the doctors so that they can provide their service in treating the patients who are in need in palliative care. The doctors from the reputed institute in Kerala helped in accomplishing our task successfully.
We hope that the training was worthy for the doctors in the country and we expect their co-operation in treating the patients with palliative care in future.
