Dr. Samantha Winemaker, MD & Dr. Hsien Seow, PhD

Helping Patients Face a Serious Illness: 7 Keys to Improve the
Patient and Provider Experience

Join Drs. Sammy Winemaker & Hsien Seow to learn 7 Keys to make it easier to talk about serious illness, dying, and death.

Drs. Winemaker and Seow are authors of the new book ‘Hope for the Best, Plan for the Rest’ and co-hosts of the podcast ‘The Waiting Room Revolution,’ which are designed to make a palliative care approach accessible to all patients and families. Based on researching and caring for thousands of patients, they will share 7 keys that can activate patients, families, and providers to have a better illness journey. They will discuss how providers can use the 7 keys to be more proactive and less crisis-driven, by working more upstream and patient-facing.
