Visit Florence and Dr Liz (PcERC)
Gather around to meet a couple members of the PcERC team. You’ll like to listen to their developments and strategies in a creating a hospital-based palliative care unit.
Meet Dr Elizabeth Namukwaya and senior nurse Florence Nalutaaya, two long-standing members of the Palliative care Education and Research Consortium (PcERC). It was pleasure to speak to them both about the palliative care unit (formed now into a NGO called PcERC) and to see their personalities shine through the camera.
If you have not done so already, consider making a donation to Cairdeas today. The funding raised during this time will go to our partners in Uganda. For PcERC, £25 supports a capacity building session for our volunteers at the hospital palliative care unit, while £40 helps a volunteer at the hospital palliative care unit to support patients and their families for one week. £75 supports a specialist palliative care nurse - and £250 funds a specialist palliative care doctor - at the hospital to provide holistic care for one week. Thank you for your continued generousity!
