This podcast can help anyone dealing with serious illness. Over the years, we have cared for and interviewed thousands of patients and families who tell us they felt overwhelmed and ‘in the dark’ during their illness journey. Yet we sometimes heard stories where individuals felt prepared, in control and ‘in the know.’ What was the difference between these experiences? The answer is the 7 keys. Join your hosts Dr. Samantha Winemaker, palliative care doctor, and Dr. Hsien Seow, health care researcher, as they share real-life stories to explain the 7 keys to being hopeful and prepared when facing serious illness.

Excellent. Practical and useful lessons for patient and caregiver!

I binged the first season of this in a week. It was so practical and easy to listen to despite the challenging subject matter. I lost a spouse over 10 years ago to pancreatic cancer and had an amazing team to support me- so many of the helpful hints I picked up over that long journey with cancer are embedded into this podcast. Well done Hsien and Sammy!!

Critical area of learning how to become more prepared and active in your health care journey

Just started listening and listening about the first key. What is being said resonates with me as a patient with what was a life threatening condition, and also with multiple chronic conditions. I am looking forward to learning more as I listen along! Well done!

Fresh, creative, simple, poignant, true

Such a captivating format, and such a fine way to structure the key steps we all need to move through as we befriend our life and our death both at the same time. I will recommend this liberally to friends, colleagues, students, patients, and my parents. Thank you, what a gift.
