Sept. 27, 2015 – What we can Learn from How Doctors Die
Our distinguished speaker was Dr. Ken Murray, author of the seminal paper, How Doctors Die. He is a retired family practitioner in Los Angeles. There were two excellent discussants: local, practitioning doctors who have registered their support for aid in dying: Dr. Jeoff Gordon and Dr. Lynette Cederquist.
Q&A discussion includes:
- Difference between Advance Directive and POLST – ( Physician Orders for Life-sustaining Treatment Paradigm®)
- DNR – Do Not Resuscitate
- Difference between hospice and palliative care
