Clearing House Program - Thank You Notes

Details about our Clearing House Program


It was so thoughtful of you and IAHPC to send The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine. The Institution, our Staff, and above all, our patients, will benefit greatly from this benevolent gesture.

Dr. Cherian Koshy

Many thanks for your kind donation of the Second Edition of the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine.

Our institute will greatly benefit from it. I have introduced palliative medicine to the second year through to the sixth year medical students. These students come to the Chatsworth Hospice 2-3 days a year to listen to lectures and interact with patients and go on home-based care.

Yours sincerely
Dr. Krish Nair

Thank you very much for considering us for the clearing House Programme. I have given out the books and believe me they are very helpful. In fact, some of the nurses who were pursuing Diploma in Paliative care really appreciated them. My desire is that we will have an adequate library for our training programmes at Kisumu Hospice.
