Dignity Scale Project

A Dignity Scale Project sponsored by us was presented at the CANSA Research Conference in 2008. The aim of the project is to assess optimal palliative care given to cancer patients by our volunteers.

Introduction of this scale has enabled caregivers to make qualitative assessments and statements of patients and there also is preliminary evidence that the use of the scale in itself enhances the dignity of the patient.
