Abstract / Summary: 
e-learning resources need to be customised to the audience and learners to make them culturally relevant. The ‘Palliative care e-learning resource for health care professionals in India’ has been developed by the Karunashraya Hospice, Bengaluru in collaboration with the Cardiff Palliative Care Education Team, Wales to address the training needs of professionals in India. The resource, comprising over 20 modules, integrates psychological, social and medical care for patients requiring palliative care for cancer and other diseases. With increased internet usage, it would help in training a large number of professionals and volunteers in India who want to work in the field of palliative care.
