Episode 1: Water Support Team

How do we name our pediatric palliative care teams? Is the word "palliative" just a liability? Why does Justin Baker regularly cosplay as a marsupial?In this inaugural episode of Pedipal, Dan and Sarah interview colleagues from around the US about the names of their teams and how they introduce themselves to families: Dr. Jared Rubenstein (Texas Children's "PACT," @DrJRubenstein), Dr. Bob Macauley (OHSU's "Bridges"), Dr. Tricia Keefer (Michigan's "Stepping Stones," @KeeferMD), and Dr. Justin Baker (St. Jude's "QoLA," @justinnbaker) weigh in on these questions and more. Their answers may surprise, vindicate, or infuriate you, but we can all agree on one thing: We're the fire department, not the fire.
