Palliative care relieves suffering and provides the best possible quality of life for people facing the stresses of serious illness. Join expert, Scott Irwin, MD, PhD, as he talks about the benefits of the palliative care model when used within the existing healthcare system. It significantly improves patient care by addressing pain management and other problems, physical, psychosocial, and spiritual. Palliative care also prolongs life and costs less than standard care alone. (#20490)
