Palliative care is a medical specialty that helps patients and their families live as well as possible when faced with a life-threatening illness such as cancer. In this Massachusetts General Hospital Blum Center presentation from July 21, 2022, Dr. Vicki Jackson provides a general overview of palliative care, the services offered at Mass General Cancer Center, and how they can benefit patients and families when cancer has touched their lives.

This program is a collaboration between the Maxwell & Eleanor Blum Patient and Family Learning Center and Mass General Cancer Center.
