September Newsletter

2023; Volume 24, Number 9, September

Dr. Lankoandé Martin, founder of Hospice Burkina, explains to a 52-year-old widow with advanced breast cancer how to use oral morphine at home. This patient was coping with severe anemia, poor sleep quality, and uncontrolled pain. September is Pain Awareness Month, which IAHPC is marking with an open webinar: Peace in Serious Health-Related Suffering and at End of Life: Is it possible? The photo, submitted by Dr. Martin to the 2021 Photo Contest, is used with permission.
