#010 - Join host Dr. Red Hoffman as she joins the long-running GeriPal Podcast to discuss all things surgical palliative care. As is the tradition on the GeriPal podcast, Red gets serenaded by GeriPal co-hosts Drs. Eric Widera and Alex Smith, along with guest co-host Dr. Joe Lin. They then go on to chat about the definition of surgical palliative care, the importance of building relationships between surgeons and palliative care providers and the common misconceptions that both disciplines have about each other. They review a recent retrospective study of the utilization of palliative care in VA patients undergoing high-risk surgical patients and brainstorm various ways that palliative care may be better integrated into the world of surgery.
