Palliative care services in India are marred by several challenges. Lack of trained human resources, non-implementation of Government’s palliative care policies, limited availability of opioids, overtly curative nature of health care with minimal scope to address psychosocial needs of life limiting conditions are some of the impediments for care.

This workshop attempts to provide a holistic overview on transition of care with special focus on advanced care planning, medical interventions, ethical framework of care and legal dimensions in delivering palliative care services.
