In 2014, the World Health Assembly passed a resolution to strengthen palliative care as a component of a country’s health care system. The Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance (WHPCA) / WHO Atlas in Palliative Care 2014, maps out national development in palliative care. In each country, patients, healthcare workers, governments, donors and other stakeholders are starting to enquire about standards of care and what indicators could be used to compare palliative care services.
This meeting oranised by Hospis Malaysia and in collaboration with the WHPCA, brings representatives from several regional and national palliative care organisations to discuss the various approaches taken to address the above topic.
