In the Sunday Times dated April 11th there were some very thought provoking responses to the article we posted last week regarding palliative care. I think this is an area of great interest to our patient population and I would like to continue the discussion. I read with great interest the responses from palliative care experts and I am convinced that so many of you would benefit from requesting that palliative care become part of your expert medical team. Fran Heller a much respected member of NY Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University will be leading a group as well as meeting with patients and family members who would like expert advice. There will be many professionals from various disciplines on hand so please take advantage of their expertise.
