Focus of Work


Palliative Care is a subspecialty that focuses on the relief or prevention of suffering -- physical, psychological, or spiritual -- in patients or families facing a life-threatening illness. My interests lie in advanced symptom management and the role palliative care can play in an intergrated healthcare system.
