In this Program Spotlight, Mary Alfano-Torres, MD, Medical Director of Chapters Health in Florida, discusses her program’s significant growth, which took a lot of time and patience. The growth—from 35-50 to 150 patients per month—included gathering specific data for each stakeholder, relationship building, implementation of screening tools, and more. Listen along as Dr. Alfano-Torres discusses the path it took to get to it’s current status, and plans for the future.
"It took a little while for my organization to recognize the unbelievable potential of palliative care; it was up to us to show them what we can do."
