Myanmar Train the Trainer Programme

Objectives and Goals

The Lien Collaborative for Palliative Care (Lien Collab) began in Myanmar when the first training was rolled out from 16-22 June 2013. It started with 5 expert faculty: 3 doctors and 2 nurses from Singapore and Australia. They taught 27 selected candidates from around the country, doctors, nurses and medical social workers, from 11 hospitals and 1 hospice. The programme was hosted by the Department of Oncology at Yangon General Hospital, the country’s largest teaching hospital. 

Educated trainers and practitioners in Palliative Care

Sustainable teaching programme and recognition of palliative care in local healthcare education

Continued government support to ensure access to Palliative care is growing sustainably

Lien Collab also continues to work with the authorities to sustain growth and continued advancement of accessible palliative care in Myanmar. The programme is currently driven more independently by the pioneer volunteers from Myanmar who have completed the programme ...

Project Milestones

Morphine Availability

The project began seeing Myanmar's healthcare systems largely not providing morphine at the start. However, through the work of Lien Collab, the government factories now manufacture oral morphine for hospitals and patients now get it free. 

Education

Over the years of working with the authorities, palliative care is now part of undergrad Medical & Nursing curriculums. 

Sustained growth from donors and trainees

Advocacy and Public Outreach and teaching in own hospitals & around the country

National Strategy

The project has received support from the Ministry of Health (MOH) in hosting the Opioid Seminar at Naypyidaw, as well future support in planning for palliative care advancement on a national level
