Palliative Care. It's not giving up - it's adding a comprehensive team approach to care when dealing with major medical illnesses. On this edition of The Body Show, Dr. Kathy Kozak talks with a pain and palliative care team about the benefits of those services for you or your loved ones if dealing with a major medical condition.

  When you are sick and  can’t speak for yourself, the most important document you might need to have is an advanced directive. What is it and how can it help your family?  On this show we’ll talk with Dr. Carolin Hubbard, an expert in palliative care and how to make the decisions now that will  help you and everyone you love with end of life care.
