Join Dr. Grant Smith, the Medical Director of the Palliative Care Team at Stanford, to learn all about palliative care, a medical specialty that focuses on caring for people and families living with a serious illness. Palliative care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of an illness and aims to improve quality of life. It can be appropriate for people at any age and at any stage of illness, and it can be delivered alongside curative treatment. Come learn about what palliative care can offer and why it might be a great addition to your health care team.

He provides palliative care services to patients who are admitted to the hospital as well as patients who are seen in a clinic setting, outside of the hospital.
