I recently started a Fellowship in Palliative Medicine after spending over 20 years practicing Emergency Medicine. Most people know little or nothing about this emerging speciality. Even worse misconceptions and misunderstandings are very common. My lastest Books and Ideas podcast is an interview with Dr. Amos Bailey, who is a genuine pioneer in both Hospice and Palliative Medicine. He gives us an inside look at how Palliative Medicine emerged out of the incredible technical advances of modern medicine. He also dispells some of the most common misunderstandings. This interview will also give you some insight into why I am making this major career change.
