Pain and Suffering - Whose Responsibility is it?
The third Thought Leadership event was on palliative care and the important role that society played in improving the end-of-life care of the terminally ill. This event was held in collaboration with Hospis Malaysia. Professor Bee Wee, Consultant Palliative Medicine and National Clinical Director for End of Life Care, NHS England discussed how palliative care could improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Palliative care promotes a holistic approach to pain and suffering while providing a safe and comfortable environment for family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and healthcare professionals to be the support network for the patient.
