Busting the myths about palliative care

The Mesothelioma UK Research Centre at the University of Sheffield has produced an animation aimed at people with mesothelioma and their families. It will also be of interest to anyone who is becoming progressively disabled by an asbestos related disease.

It looks at common misconceptions about palliative care.  In particular, it aims to dispel the idea that palliative care is only about the end of life. It is also about helping us to cope with chronic disease and the pain or discomfort this can cause. The animation shows how to ask for advice about palliative care and what to do to get in touch with the right people.
