May 31, 2022 Season 2 Episode 5

Welcome to Pediatrics. The first rule is, "Children are not just Little Adults." The second rule is also, "Children are not just Little Adults." But how does this trope fit into Pediatric Palliative Care? And is it possible that, instead, Adults are actually just Big Children??

In this episode, Sarah and Dan explore this idea with three different guests. Nimmy Simon (@palliativebear), a fellow who recently completed her pediatrics rotation, shares her reflections on the lessons learned. Sarah Keating, who had largely adult training but now works in pediatrics, shares the lessons she brought over and the culture differences she's seen. And Anand Sandesara, who proudly identifies as a pediatrician, talks about how this training enhances his work in adult palliative care.
