Presenter: Karen Wyatt,MD

Studies have shown thatterminally ill patients who have a conversation with their healthcare providersabout end-of-life options are more likely to choose care that is lessaggressive and more supportive of quality of life. But often theseconversations don't take place because healthcare providers have not beentrained to discuss these difficult topics and don't know how to lead theconversation.
