Congratulate Dr Malar Velli Segarmurthy for successfully completion of your DrPH viva voce

Congratulations to Dr Malar Velli Segarmurthy on her successful DrPH thesis defense! Her research on palliative care in Malaysia, co-supervised by Prof Nirmala Bhoo-Pathy from SPM department and Dr. Richard Lim, National Head of Service for Palliative Medicine in the Ministry of Health Malaysia, underscores the vital role of primary care doctors in healthcare delivery. By assessing availability, accessibility, and challenges in palliative care provision, she has illuminated disparities and identified crucial areas for improvement. Her findings highlight the urgent need for empowering primary care doctors, developing sustainable policies, and establishing national standards for community palliative care services. Dr Malar’s dedication to enhancing patient-centred outcomes in Malaysia is commendable, and her work lays a solid foundation for future efforts in this critical field. This accomplishment is a testament to her hard work, dedication, and academic excellence. Congratulations once again on this remarkable achievement!
