Palliative care for cancer: Podcast with Jennifer Temel and Areej El-Jawahri

On this podcast, GeriPal talks with two oncologists whose research has catapulted palliative care forward: Jennifer Temel, author of the landmark NEJM study on early outpatient palliative care for patients with advanced lung cancer; and Areej El-Jawahri, author of the landmark JAMA article on inpatient palliative care for patients with blood cancers undergoing stem cell transplant. Some topics covered include differences between inpatient and outpatient palliative care for cancer, the right dose of palliative care, and whether  separate palliative care models are needed for each cancer.
