Oncology care is multidisciplinary, encompassing body and mind, however, a gap in practice exists as the therapeutic modalities are distinct and oncology providers do not necessarily receive specialized training in palliative medicine. This lecture is to help inform oncologist of the critical work performed by our Palliative Care physicians, who specialize in end-of-life care and symptom management, so as to enhance clinical collaboration.
