Project ENABLE is a landmark palliative care intervention. And yet, I will admit (Eric did too) we didn’t really understand what it was. So we interviewed ENABLE founder Dr. Marie Bakitas and ENABLE distinguished protégée Dr. Nick Dionne-Odom to learn more about ENABLE. During the interview, we learned a great deal about ENABLE, how it has evolved, iterated, and shifted over time to include persons with diseases other than cancer, minorities with serious illness, and caregivers. We break the results of ENABLE CHF-PC, a planned plenary abstract presentation for the State of the Science meeting that was supposed to happen next week (here’s a link to the published abstract About that State of the Science. Yeah. Well, as you probably know the State of the Science, the AAHPM/HPNA/SWHPN meeting, and the GeriPal/Pallimed pub crawl have been cancelled, for all the right reasons. Er, reason. Covid19. So sadly, this will not be an oral presentation next week, but you can still hear all about it here on this podcast! We’d like to express our gratitude to the organizers of AAHPM/HPNA/SWHPN and the SOS meeting, including the staff of these organizations, planning chairs, and committees. They put in countless hours preparing for what would have been the largest palliative care meeting of all time. Thank you for all you’ve done! And yes, Marie and Nick forced me to sing Taylor Swift. Sorry! -@AlexSmithMD
