February 23rd: Extreme Measures in the ICU: When helping hurts with Jessica Zitter MD
10 am Pacific /1 pm Eastern
Listen live as Karen Wyatt speaks with Dr. Jessica Zitter, MD, MPH about changing the current paradigm of end-of-life medical decision-making. In today’s medical culture, the dying are often put on what she calls the ‘End-of-Life Conveyor Belt.’ They are intubated, catheterized, and die attached to machines, frequently without even knowing they are dying. Hear how Zitter builds bridges between patients and the healthcare team, striving to offer care aligned with each patient’s values and preferences. She has come to see that patients empowered with knowledge can die well, even beautifully. Her book, Extreme Measures – Finding a Better Path to the End of Life, has just been published this month.
