This Handbook has been created by INCTR's PAX (Palliative Access) Program, the aim of which is to help improve the delivery of good quality pallitive care in resource poor areas. Our strategies are threefold:
- collaborative efforts to develop Regional Palliative Care Centers at various key institutions which work with INCTR
- the provision of expert consulting and advisory services to national and regional governments
- the promotion of good generalist palliative care practice amongst oncology and other professionals through clinical guidelines, workshops and other means
INCTR PAX members include Dr. Fraser Black, Dr. Stuart Brown, Doug Ennals, MSW, Dr Juan Diego Harris, Virginia LeBaron RN, Dr. Robin Love. Affiliates include Dr Alison Brown Anne Callegari (Pharmacist), Dr. Gayatri Palat, Dr. MR Rajagopal, Dr. Aziza Shad, Dr. Sudip Shrestha, Dr. Geoff Spry.
Editing and type-setting of the hard copy handbook was done by Benedicte Chaidron and Sophie Lebedoff.
