Being Mortal Book Discussion: Session 2
In Being Mortal, Atul Gawande, MD, discusses “the medicalization of mortality” and its consequences, including loss of independence, separation from loved ones and the financial strains affecting patients and families. This book discussion group, facilitated by a physician with 25 years experience in primary and end-of-life care, allows participants to reflect on the care of their loved ones and on the care they may want for themselves in the future. This knowledge will help you consider when less-is-more might be the best care plan possible. The instructor is board certified in internal, hospice, and palliative medicine.
