The Waiting Room Revolution

Hsien Seow and Samantha Winemaker
MedicineHealth & Fitness

This podcast can help anyone dealing with serious illness. Over the years, we have cared for and interviewed thousands of patients and families who tell us they felt overwhelmed and ‘in the dark’ during their illness journey. Yet we sometimes heard stories where individuals felt prepared, in control and ‘in the know.’ What was the difference between these experiences? The answer is the 7 keys. Join your hosts Dr. Samantha Winemaker, palliative care doctor, and Dr. Hsien Seow, health care researcher, as they share real-life stories to explain the 7 keys to being hopeful and prepared when facing serious illness.

  • Thank you

    I work in the hospice community. I think it is so important what you are doing. This society is death phobic and grief illiterate. It’s so upsetting because it is costing lives and quality to end of lives. I have seen it through friends of friends and with the people I work with. I wish so much everyone could have an end of life doula. It makes me frustrated how health care treats life limiting conditions. I live in Ontario and I wish so much people were talking about home care and how it has su... more

  • Amazing - compassionate and informative

    I was 30 when my mother passed from cancer in hospice care - and it was the best experience for her and our family. We were learning by experience and it took years to wrap our heads’ around her passing. Beautiful interviews and such wonderful conversations!! I too have become so impassioned about sharing what death and dying are really like. Thank you for your candid and meaningful discussions Hsien and Sammy!

  • Kathryn Mannix is my hero

    I worked for many years as a Palliative Care Nurse Specialist and loved every moment of my career. I had to stop working after I had a recurrence of Ovarian Cancer and developed Breast Cancer in addition. Now I find myself in the Palliative phase of my disease and I share how I feel and what it’s all about as much as I can.

  • Excellent. Practical and useful lessons for patient and caregiver!

    I binged the first season of this in a week. It was so practical and easy to listen to despite the challenging subject matter. I lost a spouse over 10 years ago to pancreatic cancer and had an amazing team to support me- so many of the helpful hints I picked up over that long journey with cancer are embedded into this podcast. Well done Hsien and Sammy!!
