Message from Dr V.Shanta, M.B.B.S, D.G.O, M.D Chairman – Cancer Institute (WIA) Chennai

Palliative care is a specialty today. It is time to ponder on what has been achieved.  I am sorry that we do not have reliable data on the subject.  Successful palliative care is determined by the family satisfaction which can be documented.  A major deficiency that I noticed is the lack of humanity, social justice and medical ethics in the graduate and post-graduate curricula.  This seems to be a major component of a good doctor-patient relationship but is lacking in today’s practice.

The success of palliative care is measured not only by the degree of pain relief or symptom control but the satisfaction of the family. To watch the agony of pain can be most distressing.  It is this distress, caused by agonizing pain due to lack of adequate pain control in her young sister in 1923, that evoked the dream of a cancer hospital in the mind of Dr.Muthulakshmi Reddy. She was a legend in her lifetime and founder of the   Cancer Institute (WIA) at Chennai, the second in the country. We have to satisfy the patient and the near and dear.

Medical professionals especially a palliative care professional must be an embodiment of patience, compassion, and empathy – the human touch, which alone can bring a smile and hope. Hope never dies.
