In this episode Karl chats with Dr. Elissa Kozlov about psychological support for patients in palliative care. Dr. Kozlov also discusses insurance coverage for mental health in palliative care, support for family members, and the important difference between palliative and hospice care (they're not at all the same thing!).

She earned her doctorate from Washington University in both Clinical and Aging and Developmental Psychology. Her research focuses on mental health assessment and intervention within palliative care, patient and family knowledge of palliative care, later life family communication, and barriers to palliative care integration and utilization. Dr. Karl Pillemer is director of the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Hazel E. Reed Professor of Human Development, and Professor of Gerontology in Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College.
