Ep 145 Physician Compassion – The Barbara Tatham Memorial Podcast
Dr. Barbara Tatham, EM colleague and educator, died of metastatic sarcoma at the age of 32 in October 2019. During her last year of life, in between surgeries, ICU stays and rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, she gave lectures on compassionate care inspired by her journey as a patient.

US PA listener
My patients benefit from the time I spend listening. I can talk shop with the physicians I work with as a colleague and often get to share some pearls with them. Great approach(es) for learning and reinforcing. I have 3 main sources for my ongoing educations and this is the only one that is free. And it’s just as important.
