Description

Nothing is certain in life except for death and taxes. Yet at medical school we rarely spend enough time learning about death and the dying to confidently deal with it as junior doctors. In this episode, Helen interviews Dr Dipti Mittal, a palliative care consultant in Sydney on the important aspects of palliative care to know at a junior doctor level, including how to refer for pall consults and avoid "medicalising" the dying process.
