Congratulations to Dr. Harvey Chochinov, winner of the Canadian Medical Association's Frederic Newton Gisborne Starr Award 2012.Psychiatric, or psychosocial, palliative care has transformed palliative medicine. Palliation that neglects psychosocial dimensions of patient and family experience fails to meet contemporary standards of comprehensive palliative care.
