Providing Palliative Care in the Community

Like other NGOs, community hospices have been struggling in the past months since the MCO was first implemented. Community hospices play an important role in providing care and comfort to patients living with a serious illness. But hospice care, also known as palliative care, remains a taboo and difficult subject to bring up because many still associate it only with a patient’s death. To help us understand the role of community hospice, we’re speaking to Dr Lam Chee Loong and Catherine Ooi, the chairman and vice-chairman respectively of the Malaysian Hospice Council.
