    Great article. Coming from a family of doctors, it’s the younger ones that are just now understanding and practicing these skills. Thank you! Keep up the great work.

    I adored reading every word. I offer end of life care for people with a disability. After reading your article, it is very clear how people with a disability are not apart of the deathcare equation. As youclearly point out the lack of education in the basics of palliative care. To include any education on end of life care for people with a disability, I clearly see will take lifetimes to get to. Your article gave methe answers I needed. Most gratefull.
