This should be a must-watch for anyone in health care
2 June 2016 | by slwtwistSee all my reviews

This short documentary details the lives of palliative care workers in Uganda. These nurses and health care workers do amazing work with very few resources. Their patients are often located miles away from roads, many of which are barely passable. The caregivers provide not only health care and pain relief but do so in a manner that enhances the patient's dignity and humanity.

It amazes me the amount of comfort and care that can be conveyed without resorting to high-tech machinery and diagnostics. I think the American medical community could learn a lot from spending time with these health care workers.
