The way we die will be unthinkable 50 years from now.

The Vox article by Haider Warraich on April 3, 2019 highlights the fact that “how we treat dying people needs to change”. As the article concludes…”To emerge on the right side of history, the entire culture of medicine needs to be turned around. End-of-life care is not just palliative care’s business. It is everyone’s business, from emergency room doctors to primary care physicians. Physicians need to abandon outdated ideas that their role as healers is incompatible with helping patients die comfortably and on their own terms. Helping patients die well is as important as helping them live to the fullest.” – We couldn’t have said it better.
