S02 E13 - The Magic of Palliative Care: Patients & their Providers
Show Notes

This month we have focused on quality-of-life issues and this episode is part one of a two-part series on the “Magic of Palliative Care”. At times the term “palliative care” is misunderstood and so we also use the newer term ‘supportive care’ to better explain how this care supports your quality of life as you go through MBC treatment. We first turn our focus to the medical providers who help us manage symptoms and treatment side effects and, by doing so, improve multiple aspects of our lives. Cohost Natalia Green is joined by new co-host Dr. Paula Jayne with interviews of two medical providers, Anita McDonald, FNP, and Kimberly Curseen, MD, who see supportive care as essential to their work with people living with MBC.
