Ms. Lim Wai Yee
Her involvement with Hospis Malaysia started in 2014 when she led her team to develop a campaign to create greater awareness for palliative care through the introduction of the palliative care symbol. Wai Yee is a strong advocate for ensuring wider knowledge of palliative care and how it can benefit patients and their caregivers when professionally delivered with good clinical practices. She feels therefore that her contribution towards the governance of an organization such as Hospis Malaysia is therefore important.
