Generalist vs Specialty Palliative Care

I recently came across a paper written by Dr. Jessica Zitter in the Journal of Palliative Medicine, where she proposes creating a new society, the American Society for Patient Centered Physicians (ASPCP). “Its purpose would be to bring together physicians of all specialties whose treatment philosophy prioritizes patient-specific rather than specialty-specific approaches.”  

I thought the idea was brilliant and wanted to share it with our CKN readers, here’s a link:  The American Society for Patient-Centered Physicians.  Dr. Zitter also gave me the opportunity to ask her a few questions about her thoughts on the potential benefits of integrating palliative care education into mainstream medical training. Please take a look and share/comment.
