Palliative Care in Rural America: An Interview with Michael Fratkin

A recent GeriPal Podcast features an interview with Michael D. Fratkin, a palliative care clinician and founder of ResolutionCare, a palliative care service for rural and resource poor areas in Northern California.

In the chat, Dr. Fratkin discusses the barriers and benefits of providing specialty-level palliative care for areas that generally have no access to these services, as well as ways one can fund it.   In addition to discussing traditional house calls visits, the episode also includes a conversation on novel approaches, including in-home video conferencing.
