Join Christina Prevetton the episode today as she discusses her family's personal experience with end-of-life care, comparing different scenarios between family members who had hospice/palliative care and those who did not. Christina challenges listeners to step back and recognize if they are being mindful of patient's choices when nearing the end-of-life, and respecting the dignity of those choices as it relates to physical therapy treatment. Christina also reminds listeners to always advocate for their patients and be a resource, especially with hospice/palliative care as it is often not recommended as an option for patients.
