T2: We hear a lot about not knowing when to refer to palliative care. When is the patient or symptom burden complex enough? When is the illness serious enough? Yes hospitalists refer, but is it early enough to have an impact? Just non-clinician-spaining 💁🏼‍♀️ #JHMChat

RT @EileenBarrettNM: @JHospMedicine @LTummalapalli @DOMSinaiNYC This is *such* a great question. Frailty + when it seems they’ve fallen through the cracks to discuss the implications of their frailty with their PCP or family. I don’t want to flood the amazing #palliativecare team, but it’s nice to get ahead of a terrible admission #JHMChat

@EileenBarrettNM @JHospMedicine I say "aggressive" as often as I can when talking about palliative care! "Aggressive symptom management", "aggressive control of pain" etc. #jhmchat
Diane E. Meier @DianeEMeier
I also wish #hospitalists knew that the training (on symptoms, on communication, on family caregiver burden, on options for care) we did not get in med school/residency is now available to us- our patients need us to have these skills. #JHMChat
