Walther Center in Global Palliative Care and Supportive Oncology
The Walther Center in Global Palliative Care & Supportive Oncology is based at Indiana University School of Medicine and IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center from which its international reach extends.
The aim of the Walther Center’s work is to advance global palliative care and supportive oncology through policy, research, education and practice for the relief of pain and suffering worldwide.
James Cleary, MBBS, leads the Center and is the Walther Senior Chair in Supportive Oncology. The Walther Center’s work engages a three-pronged approach to accomplish these aims: developing critical guidance documents and essential resources; implementing policy change through training programs; collaborating in research efforts across and with international institutions, regional organizations, and at individual country levels.
