Students Initiative in Palliative

Students Initiative in Palliative Care (SIP) is a student initiation for manifestation of community participation in palliative care. Participation of student community in palliative care is possible as Social participation towards a common public good is always an integral character of student communities around the globe. Engaging of students in palliative care has a dual advantage. One is that their energy can be utilised for the benefits of patients with chronic disease. Another is that, Inculcating the spirit of care can have a positive effect on the attitude of students. With this idea, the Pain and Palliative society started its students in care programme. DUA College SIP unit organised various activities in collaboration with Pain and Palliative Centre, Vazhakkad like fund collection drive for the Kidney patients, calibration of palliative day, home visit, etc.
