Case Studies in Palliative and Supportive Care

One of the goals of the UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute is to advance the practice of our specialty by sharing our knowledge with students and health care professionals around the world.

To this end, we share monthly synopses of notable or particularly interesting cases in which palliative care has played a role.

If you have any questions, opinions, or insight about any particular case, we encourage you to get in touch with the institute. To learn more about our work, consult our Case of the Month Archive.
