I'm tweeting now from this workshop on Project Hamrahi. Come along and hear about the project, everything it has learnt, @ meet some of the team. #21OPCC oceanicpallcare.com/events/session… @AusPallLinkInt @OdetteSpruyt @rachelcogs
@AusPallLinkInt @OdetteSpruyt @rachelcogs Here is some more information and history about Project Hamrahi. Hamrahi is Hindi for "fellow traveller". A project of mutual learning and development between Australian/NZ and Indian palliative care providers, run by @AusPallLinkInt apli.net.au/project-hamrah… #21OPCC
@AusPallLinkInt @OdetteSpruyt @rachelcogs @OdetteSpruyt The project makes you think about the essence of palliative care, when resources are scarce. Compassion, holistic care. #21OPCC Image
@AusPallLinkInt @OdetteSpruyt @rachelcogs @AusPallLinkInt Executive member @pallcarecns chatting to the Lakshadweep team Dr Ali Azheer
and K. Abdul Moulana on the benefits of Project Hamrahi. Simple things have had a huge impact on the lives of patients - communication, comfort, basic care, value of home visits. #21OPCC
Not only about #palliativecare but about company! Human values are shared through Project Hamrahi. Something comical about what to do with a straw which @pallcarecns might have to explain🤔 Palliative care is the most important thing in Lakshadweep! #21OPCC @palliumindia
Such lovely sentiments about the reciprocal benefits of #palliativecare cross-cultural projects like Hamrahi. Lifelong friendships until our own dying days ❤️ #21OPCC
@MariannePhill, another @AusPallLinkInt Executive Member, doing a stirling job facilitating this session across digital tech! #21OPCC
@MariannePhill @AusPallLinkInt Joan Ryan, @AusPallLinkInt Executive Member taking us now from Lakshadweep to Assam! A cultural treat across India.Dr Iqbal Bahar reflecting on his mentors Dr Ravi Kannan and @Dr_Rajagopal_R @palliumindia #21OPCC Image
@MariannePhill @AusPallLinkInt @Dr_Rajagopal_R @palliumindia Super dedicated palliative care nurses in Assam. Live at the hospital, a real family. #21OPCC
@MariannePhill @AusPallLinkInt @Dr_Rajagopal_R @palliumindia In Assam, Project Hamrahi is providing real benefits. Connections globally, friendships, shared learning and humanity, a real sense of belonging. #21OPCC Image
Home visits with community nurses, coupled with phone calls by the palliative care team. Long distances travelled to get to homes. Geographical challenges mean phone calls are an important complement. Mirrors challenges we have in our own remote communities in Australia. #21OPCC
Morphine consumption is low in Assam, but growing due to the development of palliative care. More information on global palliative care and opioid availability can be found here: unodc.org/unodc/en/data-… #21OPCC
Project Hamrahi has made a positive impact on our hospital. Each visit is unique and mutually meaningful. These are the faces of our fellow travellers. What beautiful travellers they are! #21OPCC Image
Now moving West on our cultural journey to Gujarat! @JohnH35, @AusPallLinkInt Executive Member, presenting with Dr Saima Furqan @PalCareOrg on The Hamrahi Project - The Journey of Life! #21OPCC @palliumindia Image
@PalCareOrg describing Project Hamrahi as a life changing experience and providing a purpose in life. Challenges centred on lack of resources. #21OPCC Image
Visit palcarefoundation.org for more information on palliative care developments in Gujarat. @PalCareOrg Dr Saima "We look forward to the support in our work, alone we can do little, but together we can do a lot." #21OPCC @palliumindia @AusPallLinkInt
@OdetteSpruyt discussing the outcomes of Project Hamrahi's 10 year evaluation. Happy 10th birthday Project Hamrahi! 20 sites across India visited, 50 visits, 32 mentors! Amazing effort by @AusPallLinkInt #21OPCC
You can find the summary results of the Project Hamrahi evaluation in a poster at #21OPCC oceanicpallcare.com/talks/project-… @OdetteSpruyt @rachelcogs Image
Recommendations: 1) improve planning before, during, after visits 2) scale up intensity to strengthen relationships and outcomes 3) strengthen engagement, including nursing mentoring 4) clear orientation, training of mentors. #21OPCC
#COVID19 has impacted all other services, including #palliativecare, non-COVID19 services. Collaborative research in the future for Project Hamrahi would be valuable. #21OPCC
Thanks for a great workshop @AusPallLinkInt & Indian #palliativecare colleagues. @AusPallLinkInt welcomes new members & mentors. Project Hamrahi relies on the generous contributions of members. Here is how you can get involved as a member 👇or email info@apli.net.au #21OPCC Image

Robert Yates of @ChathamHouse and @LSHTM comes to us from a sunny London! We are so lucky to have him chat to us about how palliative care can get a "decent crack of the whip" on universal health reforms. #21OPCC
@ChathamHouse @LSHTM "This is an opportunity for radical change. We should be prepared and get organised." But what is Universal Health Coverage? Important to nail down the definition. #21OPCC Simple definition here 👇 Image
@ChathamHouse @LSHTM But the longer definition makes it clear that palliative care is part of the continuum. Wherever you see UHC, we must insist on palliative care not being crowded out by curative services. #21OPCC Image

Changing gears from death law to death literacy. Tweeting now from @KezNoo workshop on using the death literacy index. #21OPCC
@KezNoo From care & social networks in 2008, to Death Literacy Index today, translated into multiple languages. A fantastic journey @KezNoo & team have been on linking networks with death literacy with public health with social determinants. #21OPCC @PHPalCare
@KezNoo @PHPalCare @DeathLiteracy definition. Talks about the "death system" which is important to think about in #compassionatecommunities. The death system is where all the partners converge - funeral directors, florists, churches, schools - all those existing outside the health system #21OPCC Image

@QUT Lots of relevant resources here: end-of-life.qut.edu.au #21OPCC
@QUT Exploring complex legal decision-making in #palliativecare. Are clinicians legally covered if they decide not to offer ongoing treatment deemed futile or worse, potentially harmful to the patient? #21OPCC
