Palliative care physicians enjoy the opportunity to make a special kind of difference in the lives of patients, families, and communities. Through their experiences in the palliative care program at the safety-net hospital, many medical students and residents have learned to their surprise that the dying poor sometimes have access to better care than the dying rich. Today, the dying poor are not only receiving better care—as this story illustrates, they are also playing an important role in helping to illuminate what such care really looks like, and their experiences are helping to improve the care of dying patients in their community and throughout the world.
