Better end-of –life decisions
It’s a most unpleasant topic.
Everyone hopes for an easy exit. Few really want to ponder mortality.
But author and physician Atul Gawande does just that in his book, Being Mortal. He takes on end-of-life challenges and our obsession with chasing cures, and offers insight about making the last days better.
PBS’s “Frontline” also did a documentary based on that book. If you’re up for such reading and viewing, see: http://atulgawande.com/book/being-mortal/ and http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/being-mortal/.
