The hospice room at Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital was selected as an excellent educational material institution for the 2018 hospice and palliative care system by the Ministry of Health and Welfare at the 6th Hospice Day ceremony held recently.
The ministry picked the best example of patient educational materials produced and used by hospice-specialized organizations through experience and knowledge.
The hospice room at the Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital has been singled out as the best educational material institution in recognition of the excellence of its materials, known as "control of cancer pain and direct understanding of painkiller."
Along with this, Lee Soon-nam, a professor of hemato oncology at the hospital, received a citation from the Minister of Health and Welfare for his role in setting up a hospice and palliative care system in Korea, while leading the hospital's hospice room.
Meanwhile, the hospice room, which was opened in April 2014, was selected as an advisory hospice demonstration agency by the Ministry of Health and Welfare in August 2017 to provide terminal patients with a more comfortable service.
