End of Life Care

A colleague of mine recently forwarded me a great article in The New Yorker, titled "Letting Go:  What should medicine do when it can't save your life."

It is definitely not a light article but it is well written and covers great topics that Social Workers are often called upon to help address; advanced directives, palliative and hospice care, and working with families to help them decide what they want in terms of medical care that allows for what is most important to them as they go through the end of life.
