Emory Palliative Care Center Events with Dr. Rajagopal

Dr. M.R. Rajagopal, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize nominee and father of palliative care in India, will be sharing his experiences as part of three events hosted by the Emory Palliative Care Center. This is a great opportunity for those who attended the Death Cafe last month to deepen your understanding of palliative care. For those who did not attend, these events will be a great introduction to this important area of medicine. Students are welcome to attend one, two, or all three events!

"In Conversation with Dr. MR Rajagopal and Dr. Tammie Quest, Director of the Emory Palliative Care Center" 
Key areas of discussion will include: Opioids and "non-addictive opioids" used in India, care of the dying in India, understanding the transformation of healthcare in the developing countries and the current state of palliative care, understanding the cultural disparities that influence the care of the Indian population, and strategies to provide culturally competent care for the Indian population.
