Palliative Care

Palliative Medicine in Believers Church Medical College Hospital took origin on October 6th, 2015 with the vision of Helping, Healing and Sharing Hope with the love of Christ.  Our aim is to provide ''Care beyond Cure" through a holistic approach to patients with life-threatening and life- limiting illnesses  such as malignancies, dementia, neurological disorders like stroke, motor neuron disease,  advanced non-communicable diseases or any other situation where there is significant health related suffering including old age. Our main focus is on symptom management, outstanding of which is pain. We follow the WHO ladder of pain management including the use of oral morphine as step 3 analgesic. We are licenced as a Registered Medical Institution for procuring, stocking and dispensing Tablet Morphine. We cater to the needs of our patients and their family members/caregivers considering them as a single unit. Our management intends ''neither to hasten nor to delay death" but to ''add life to their days rather than days to their life"
