Episode 2

Dr. Chin-Lin Ching, medical director of palliative care at Highland Hospital, joins her mentor, Dr. Diane E. Meier, director of the Center to Advance Palliative Care for an interview. In this episode, Dr. Ching shares how she turned around her program, which was considered successful on paper (based on high and rising volume), but unsustainable due to strains on staffing — causing her team to feel overwhelmed and burnt out. Instead of walking away, Dr. Ching took steps to overcome her feelings of despair, which included research, planning, and implementing change.
