Is Telemedicine the Future of Palliative Care?
In a MedPage Today article, Diane E. Meier, MD, and other palliative care clinicians discuss the significant impact that telehealth has had during the COVID-19 pandemic, including improved access to palliative care. As Dr. Meier says, "There wasn't a cure for COVID, and we had only minimally effective treatments. But with palliative care we can always ensure human connection and relieve suffering. Now everyone understands it better than before."
