Palliative Care Featured in WaPo, WSJ, NPR, Boston Globe

Quick media round-up from this week:


All of these were making the rounds on Twitter today with lots of clicks and shares from people not in our field which is always nice to see. I am not going to go into detail on any of these articles tonight, but please share them with your team.  I particularly liked the WSJ and Boston Globe one.  The NYT blog deserves its own blog post to discuss the importance of language.

If any Pallimed Reader wants to write up a guest post on the WSJ, Boston Globe or NYT articles, email me your 250-500 word write up christian@pallimed.org. (Yes we are open to guest posts, more details to come! See your name in lights, or at least the faint glow of some strangers laptop.)

The NPR and WaPo articles were covering the basics.  Obviously important but not sure you will gain a lot from reading those.  And interestingly those were both written by the same person Michelle Andrews from the Kaiser Health Network.  Not sure why they are covering palliative care issues so much, but keep it up if it gets published.

This convergence doesn't quite rival the 2010 St. Patrick's Day journal smorgasbord of palliative care but is still a pretty impressive grouping of media outlets in just a span of a few days.
