Lisa Frost also talks to us about palliative care and discuss some of the myths behind it and what makes you eligible to palliative care. What exactly is palliative care? Palliative care is comfort care given to a patient who has a serious or life-threatening disease, such as cancer, from the time of diagnosis and throughout the course of illness. It is usually provided by a specialist who works with a team of other healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, registered dietitians, pharmacists, and social workers.
