Over the last three decades hospice and palliative care in the U.S. has grown from a volunteer-led movement into a significant part of our health care system.  This field of medicine is undergoing dramatic changes. Charlene Thruston, Nurse Practitioner and Program Director of Palliative Supportive Care of Nantucket and David Rehm, President and CEO of Hope Health, formerly Hospice and Palliative Care of Cape Cod join us to talk about the new paradigm for care.
