In this episode we will explore “Osteopathic Palliative Care.” From the earliest phases of Osteopathic history, palliative care has formed a key component of the Osteopathic approach to healthcare. We address the important question: What is Osteopathic Palliative Care?
We start with an Osteopathic Origin Story, the account of A.T. Still caring for Harvey Hildreth who was dying from esophageal cancer in 1886. Harvey was the father of his close student and personal friend: Arthur Hildreth, DO.
We’ll delve into how Osteopathic palliative care is far more inclusive and intimate than palliative care in the prevailing medical culture. Because of the all-inclusive nature of Osteopathic treatment, our approach includes care for people with chronic or even incurable problems, as well as end-of-life care that is most often associated with hospice care.
