training activities for our own staff and volunteers
- To equip staff and volunteers with knowledge, skills and attitudes for the delivery of high quality Palliative care
- To strengthen and sustain the quality of the multidisciplinary team
we also train others so that :
- Patients coming to Queens can receive ongoing quality palliative care services closer to their place of residence
- access to palliative care services for people living in the South West Zone of malawi can be improved
- we undertake or participate in research with palliative care focus
- methodology and outcomes should be applicable to the local context or other similar environments
A wide variety of health workers pass through our service:
Medical, clinical officer and nursing students are briefed and sensitised on palliative care by staff at Tiyanjane.
3rd and 5th year medical students have specific learning objectives on palliative care.
Clinical attachments are offered to Malawian health workers who are sent from institutions interested in scaling up palliative care. They spend a week in the clinic and a week with the community team to experience the variety of palliative care services on offer at Tiyanjane.
