Description

"My doctor has referred me to palliative care - does that mean they've given up on me and I'm going to die?". This is a common and understandable concern for patients who have a life limiting condition when they first hear about the referral.
In episode 6 of Talking Mortality, we explore this and some other misunderstandings about palliative care. Dr Karen Harvie who is a consultant in palliative medicine, helps to bring some clarity and realism.
Reflecting on her years of experience caring for patients with palliative care needs, Karen shares her wisdom and guides us through some of the frequently encountered myths about end-of-life-care.
