About me

Media Watch is distributed weekly to colleagues who are active or have a special interest in hospice, palliative care and end-of-life issues to help keep them abreast of current, emerging and related issues, and to also inform discussion and to encourage further inquiry.

Media Watch is compiled by Barry R. Ashpole from Ontario, Canada. Please provide feedback to Barry at the listed email address.
