Psychological Issues in Palliative Care: Elissa Kozlov and Des Azizoddin

In this GeriPal podcast, Elissa Kozlov and Des Azizoddin address the psychological aspects of care for people living with serious illness. Psychological/psychiatric aspects of palliative care have been identified as the biggest area in need of improvement as palliative care teams often do not include psychologists. This is due to the lack of financial structures in place to reimburse psychologists. The podcast also includes a discussion of the psychological components of cancer pain.
