Between 17th October and 23 November our Association for Palliative and Hospice Care organised the trainings on discussion of rights of seriously (terminally) ill patients for more than 80 representatives from more than 30 NGOs from 15 districts of Kiev oblast. Participants raised awareness of the legal framework of assistance to the sick and got deeper insight into the rights of this category of people and learned about opportunities of help these people. The trainings took place in the framework of the project supported by US Embassy, whose goal is the protection of seriously (terminally) ill patients. For the first time in Ukraine the special attention was drawn to the rights of persons with disabilities in the context of hospice care. So far, human rights organizations paid the main attention to the right of access to pain management. In our training this theme was presented as well, but in a broader context.
