How Doctors Die

How Doctors Die | The art of living, the art of dying | Scoop.it

It’s not a frequent topic of discussion, but doctors die, too. And they don’t die like the rest of us. What’s unusual about them is not how much treatment they get compared to most Americans, but how little. For all the time they spend fending off the deaths of others, they tend to be fairly serene when faced with death themselves. They know exactly what is going to happen, they know the choices, and they generally have access to any sort of medical care they could want. But they go gently.

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day - Why it matters!

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day - Why it matters! | The art of living, the art of dying | Scoop.it

Palliative care is not just for the dying, nor is it just for cancer patients.  It is a healthcare approach that serves people who are seriously ill, as well as their caregivers.  It can be given at home or in the hospital. Government or private insurance should cover it.  Palliative care is a holistic approach to life-threatening illness that aims to add quality of life, and provide wrap around services when patients and families are attempting curative treatments, as well as when curative treatments are no longer beneficial.  Palliative care teams should address physical symptoms as well as psychosocial or spiritual problems.
