Exploring End of Life Care

Being Mortal

 

Exploring End of Life Care

 

FRONTLINE followed renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

This was remarkable to watch, and experience. Let us know your thoughts on Twitter at @MayoInnovation or with # TXFM.
