Conversations about End-of-Life Care are Key to Improving the Experience for Patients, Providers and Families

June 21, 2022

In medicine death is seen as a failure, and we do everything we can to avoid failure. This supports the societal stigma associated with talking about death and dying, as we no longer see death as a part of life. But one of the unexpected outcomes of the pandemic is that it’s made the conversation about end-of-life care front and center - including advance care planning, palliative care for patients, helping people share their goals for care and helping families support those goals. In this conversation with Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider on the Business Group on Health Podcast, we talk about grief, death and dying and caregiving, as well how employers can create a space that fosters safety and compassion as part of the caregiving, end of life and grief conversation. Dr. Ungerleider is a practicing internal medicine physician, host of the TED Health Podcast and founder of the Endwell Foundation, focused on transforming the end of life into a human-centered experience.
