Palliative care is a relatively new specialty. And it, just like other medical specialties, is siloed. And the issues go beyond lack of patient education. There is a lack of physician training too.
Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider is on a mission to change that. To make the end of life experience better for everybody. With her help, Extremis and End Game are produced, and air on Netflix. These documentaries give us a “both ends of the spectrum” view of death.
Because of these issues, she has started a non-profit, called End Well ,to bring all involved industries together to talk, and figure out how to change the landscape around dying. A symposium to “unsilo” palliative care.
