How can we all live life fully… right to the very end?
US surgeon and writer Atul Gawande is convinced there’s a better way to help patients navigate the end of life… yet it’s the doctors who often struggle to accept the inevitable.
“You don’t have to spend much time with the elderly or those with terminal illness to see,
over and over and over again, how medicine fails the people it is supposed to help.”
From moving end-of-life conversations among doctors, patients and their families to dealing with the death of his own father, this is one man’s thoughtful and sometimes heartbreaking search for answers.
