The Pain and Palliative care unit of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital came into being with the inauguration of a multidisciplinary pain and palliative care committee on 9th September, 2008. The committee was charged with the following responsibilities:

•    To provide World class pain and palliative care services in the hospital

•    To draw up a protocol for acute and chronic pain; and palliative care for consideration of the hospital.

•    To make any other appropriate recommendation(s) on pain and palliative care

The unit started rendering organized clinical services on Friday 8th May, 2009. Subsequently, patients are being seen on out-patient basis every Friday.

Apart from the regular Friday outpatient clinic consultations, which the unit runs, the unit also provides inpatient pain and palliative care services to cancer patients, patient with chronic non-malignant diseases and those with acute and chronic non- cancer pain conditions on admission. This is usually done in collaboration with the primary managing team.

The unit also carries out weekly home visitations to provide home care and bereavement support; pain and palliative care education; and engages in advocacy and community sensitization on pain and palliative care services.

The team is headed by Dr. I.K. Kolawole.

Routine clinic consultation: Fridays 9.00 am – 12.00pm, run by Drs. I.K. Kolawole, K.O. Olafimihan, and Z.A. Suleiman.
