Palliative care Education and Research Consortium (PcERC)
Palliative Care for All in Uganda and Beyond
We are the Palliative care Education and Research Consortium (PcERC), working in partnership with Makerere-Mulago Palliative Care Unit (MMPCU). Our goal is to provide quality palliative care for all in Uganda and beyond.
Our mission is to operate a centre of excellence which improves access to quality, evidence-based palliative care for patients and famileis in need through deliverting and integrated clinical service, carrying out research, advocacy, training and capacity building, in collaboration with partners.
I like to spend all of my time with the patients. When caring for a patient, I listen, and when necessary, I respond.

We are advocating for more students to attend clinical instruction in palliative care (not just classroom learning).
