HealthWise at Five: Palliative Care Month

November is National Hospice and Palliative Care month. Palliative care is used to treat chronically sick or terminal patients. It's a growing area of medicine; especially as baby boomers age and end of life care becomes more important. Dr. Tommie Farrell is the medical director for palliative care at UMC, and he joins us to explain what palliative care is.
