What to look for Smart Talk Wednesday, November 20, 2013:
November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.
Since many people don't discuss death and end-of-life issues, they may not be familiar with with either concept.
The National Hospice Foundation says:
Palliative care is centered on caring for patients and their families, supporting quality of life by anticipating, preventing and treating suffering.
Smart Talk addresses hospice and palliative care of Wednesday's program with Dr. Joan Harrold, Vice President, Medical Services, Hospice & Community Care and Dr. Douglas Arbittier, Medical Director of Perioperative Services and physician champion of WellSpan Health's End-of-Life Taskforce.
