The Singapore Hospice & Palliative Care Story-The Movement that Refused to Die


Commissioned by the Singapore Hospice Council,  authored by Mr Danesh Daryanani, “The Singapore Hospice and Palliative Care Story – The Movement that Refused to Die”, documents the history of the movement in Singapore. It chronicles the early days of Singapore’s first hospice – St Joseph’s Home, the bumpy journey of setbacks to the formation of a network of hospice & palliative services we see today. This book also honours the many people who have contributed to the movement in bringing care, hope, dignity and love to the dying – from the pioneers, volunteers, medical professionals, to the President of the Republic of Singapore. What started as a grassroots movement, palliative care has become a part of the undergraduate and specialist medical training curriculum, with services integrated into the health and medical care ecosystem in Singapore.
