Palliative care is for everyone (yeah, even YOU) with guest, trauma surgeon Dr. Red Hoffman

Wait, isn’t palliative care something hospice does before somebody dies? Well, yes, but that’s just part of the story: palliative care covers a whole lot of health conditions, even temporary medical health setbacks.

Palliative care is like symptom relief for the emotional challenges of being alive. Doesn’t that sound really interesting? Find out what it is, and why it applies to YOU in this week’s episode.
