On the road, talking about hospice and palliative care
March 10, 2014 Leave a comment
I am on my way to the LA area to present some preliminary research on the cost saving potential of hospice and palliative care, and reform of the Medicare hospice benefit, at City of Hope Hospital in Pasadena. There, I will be meeting with Dawn Gross, Chair, Department of Supportive Care and Palliative Medicine and others at City of Hope to discuss some some work we are doing on barriers to hospice for persons with blood borne cancers, and to kick around some future research collaborations between Duke and City of Hope. On Wednesday, I will head down to San Diego for the Annual Assembly of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. If you will be there and want to chat, say hi on twitter @donaldhtaylorjr on drop me an email.
