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.

Empowering for patients and families

I really like how this is focused on empowering patients and families to be in the know. They are right, a book about palliative care is not likely something a patient is going to pick up and read. This Podcast makes a difficult topic more accessible to those facing serious illness.
