Podcast about Palliative Care

Palliative care should be implemented at the beginning of any serious or life-limiting diagnosis.  It restores control of decisions to the individual. 
Palliative care practitioners work with individuals to control symptoms related to the illness, or the treatment.  This includes pain, nausea/vomiting, appetite and taste changes, nutrition, etc.  With any diagnosis that is serious, a provider team should be established to care for the individual holistically.  This may include a medical oncologist, surgical oncologist, radiation oncologist, palliative care physician/nurse practitioner, social worker, nutritionist, clinical nurse navigator, and others. 
The following podcast is an excellent explanation of palliative care/symptom management, and is meant to help explain how individuals and caregivers can care for themselves throughout their journey.

Our blog here has a podcast on this subject so please take a look and have a listen if you can.
