The Lien Collaborative for Palliative Care was co-developed by the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN) and the Lien Foundation, a philanthropic house in Singapore which works in the areas of water and sanitation, early childhood education, aging and palliative care.
This is a capability-building program that trains future leaders of palliative care to start and scale up services in developing countries in Asia. The project involves sending an interdisciplinary expert team drawn from among its members to selected institutions in each country for a week of training twice a year for three years, coupled with continuing mentorship. This in-country program would be complemented by clinical attachments of key individuals at established palliative care units in the Asia Pacific region.
