As we told you a few days ago, we’re talking palliative care on multiple platforms this week.
We kicked it off with our first #bswhchats Twitter chat on the topic on Tuesday.
Then, on Wednesday, KERA News (90.1 FM) highlighted the Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas music therapy program. Reporter Lauren Silverman’s touching piece noted that, at Baylor Dallas, music is used, along with medicine, to help patients manage chronic illness.”
The music therapy program was also featured in a WFAA-TV (Channel 8) piece last year.
On Wednesday afternoon, Silverman sat down with two local experts on palliative care for the first “On Call” podcast, a collaboration between KERA and Baylor Scott & White Health. She’ll be talking to Robert L. Fine, MD, Clinical Director of the Office of Clinical Ethics and Palliative Care at Baylor Scott and White, and Elizabeth Paulk, MD, the director of the Palliative Care Clinic at Parkland Health & Hospital System. Paulk is also the program director of the Palliative Care Fellowship Program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and associate professor of internal medicine.
The “On Call” podcast series, hosted by Silverman, will provide an insider view of critical health care topics through the eyes of local doctors and other health care providers and experts. You can listen to the complete first episode above.
