1. We describe some of the challenging clinical situations which may potentially lead to burnout in palliative care clinicians.
2. We also describe the emotions they experienced when they undergo these situations.
3. We strongly recommend the palliative care fraternity to be aware of these challenging situations and the emotions evoked and to create platforms where these emotions can be shared and acknowledged in a ‘safe’ environment.
