The Binaytara Foundation will establish the first home hospice and palliative care training center in Madhya Pradesh, India, to help provide dying patients with peace, dignity and comfort. The center will allow for the organic growth of home hospice and palliative care as healthcare providers complete their training and establish their own programs in India and neighboring countries.
There is currently only one home hospice and palliative care program in Madhya Pradesh, India, which the Binaytara Foundation established in July 2017. The need for that service is great, with over 73 million people living in that state. To begin to fill that gap in service, we need to establish a dedicated training hub for healthcare providers so that home hospice and palliative care services can spread throughout the region.
The Binaytara Foundation will establish a home hospice and palliative care training center at Ujjain District Hospital in Madhya Pradesh. This process will involve training a team of two doctors and six nurses as instructors for the center. Once the team is ready, they will begin training other providers so home hospice and palliative care expands organically in India and nearby countries.
This program will help thousands of terminally ill patients spend their last few months and weeks of life in comfort, allowing them to have a peaceful and dignified death. Family members taking care of their loved ones will receive education in order to provide relief and comfort, which will ease some of the stress associated with taking care of a dying loved one.
