Hope For The Best, Plan For The Rest: Innovations in End-of-Life Care with Dr. Sammy
In this episode, the guys are honoured to join Dr. Sammy! A distinguished medical professional with a wealth of experience and a passion for palliative care reform. Dr. Sammy, a McMaster University Medical School graduate, holds a remarkable record of accomplishment. With a background in Family Medicine and fellowship training in Palliative Medicine, she dedicates her clinical practice to the community, providing compassionate care in patients’ homes. But Dr. Sammy’s impact extends beyond the clinic. She’s a vocal advocate for palliative care reform, believing that these principles should be integrated into care from the outset of a patient’s illness journey. Alongside co-author Dr. CN Seow, she co-hosts the Waiting Room Revolution podcast and co-authored “Hope For The Best, Plan For The Rest: 7 Keys for Navigating a Life-Changing Diagnosis.” A book that every single person should get their hands on! In this episode, the gang delves into vital topics such as empowering patients and families with information, the importance of the ‘big picture’ in illness, and the challenges of toxic positivity in healthcare.
