Rural Doctor Launches Startup To Ease Pain Of Dying Patients : Shots - Health News : NPR

This is a great story about Dr. Michael Fratkin, who has developed an independently funded end of life practice.

"Fratkin is an internist and specialist in palliative medicine. He's the guy who comes in when the cancer doctors first deliver a serious diagnosis. He manages medications to control symptoms like pain, nausea and breathlessness. And he helps people manage their fears about dying, and make choices about what treatments they're willing — and not willing — to undergo."
