The Myths & Metaphors of Palliative Care

Many people do not realize that the vast majority of patients who utilize palliative care are not terminally ill.  They are debilitated by diseases such as arthritis, chronic heart failure, or nerve damage in the feet from diabetes, which affect the quality of their lives and their ability to function.
