Activity 6: Michelle’s illness progresses

Michelle attends a follow-up appointment with Dr Meredith North, her medical oncologist. She has completed her radiotherapy and has commenced the palliative chemotherapy. She is exhausted and looks unwell.

She is symptomatic with breathlessness and expresses her concern about this. Meredith assesses her breathlessness and develops a management plan with Michelle and Pete. As part of this plan, she introduces the concept of palliative care.
