Podcast 164: Talking about death

(3 votes, average: 2.67 out of 5)

Running time: 11 minutes

Last month John You and his colleagues published a guide to discussing advance care planning with patients at high risk of dying in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

It’s full of practical advice, and I thought it would be interesting to get a sense of You’s approach to this difficult issue that all clinicians confront sooner or later.
