Apparently my attempted fellowship announcement Tweet earlier this week got chopped off. Take two: I was thrilled this week to find out that I’ll be staying in Boston next year as a fellow in the Harvard Interprofessional Palliative Care Fellowship!!

Me: I want to start by learning about you. Tell me about yourself. Every single patient: *starts to recite medical history* Me: Ok. Now tell me about YOU Pt: some version of “you don’t care about that” Me: I really do. Pt: 😭😭 ♥️♥️

Long day...I was present when two dying patients took their last breaths. In both cases I had been consulted urgently for symptom management and had only been in their rooms for a minute or two. Neither suffered but I feel a bit empty, as if I should have done more.

A approach should be provided concurrently alongside disease management. It’s not an “either-or.”

Attn people living w/serious illness: If you haven’t had a palliative care consult, you’re missing out! Make sure you’re referred to someone board certified in palliative care—don’t just accept “oh, I already do that” as an answer.

Greetings from Shady Acres. If that sounds like the name of a nursing home, that's because it is. 🙄 My condition hasn't deteriorated that much, but my mom was overwhelmed caring for me. It's not what either of us wanted, but it's for the best. I miss my precious puppy

Specialist teams provide some of the MOST complex care to seriously ill pts including: - disease modifying Tx - complex symptom management - specialized psycho-social-spiritual support - goals of care esp. with futility or need for conflict resolution
