#028 - Join host Dr. Red Hoffman as she interviews Andy Baxter, the founder of the Cunniff-Dixon Foundation. The Foundation is named in honor of Andy's wife, Carley, who died of breast cancer in 2005, as well as in honor of her physician, Dr. Peter S. Dixon. The mission of the Cunniff-Dixon Foundation is to enrich the Doctor-Patient relationship near the end of life by fostering human development in medicine and supporting and funding projects relating to Palliative Care.
In 2009, along with the American College of Surgeons, the Foundation produced Surgical Palliative Care: A Resident's Guide. For many years, this was the only readily available resource available for surgeons who were interested in learning how to integrate palliative medicine into the care of surgical patients. The Foundation's latest project, Planning Way My, is a free resource created to help guide people through their Advance Care Planning journey.
