GeriPal - A Geriatrics and Palliative Care Podcast

Apr 17, 2018

This conversation was motivated in part by a recent expert consensus statement on key knowledge and skills standards about hospice and palliative medicine for emergency medicine providers.

How can palliative care services that are typically available bankers hours work with the emergency department, open 24-7?
