Real-World Palliative Care in GYN Oncology: WHO (can do it), WHAT (is it), WHEN (to start), WHERE (can we do this) and WHY (is it so important)? is a live, roundtable discussion with a range of experts from academic centers to small community practice. Experts present examples of how palliative care is integrated in a variety of practice settings with varying resources. They also discuss some common difficult scenarios and misconceptions about palliative care and tips about how you can best communicate and help your patients during their entire cancer journey.
