Podcast 24: An interview with Dr. Douglas B. White on the perspectives of surrogate decision makers regarding discussions about their loved one’s prognosis

(2 votes, average: 4.00 out of 5)

We talk with Douglas B. White about his paper in the Annals of Internal Medicine, entitled “Hope, Truth, and Preparing for Death: Perspectives of surrogate decision makers,” and we offer a roundup of the week’s news.

A reminder, before we start, that Admitting Diagnosis is taking the next two weeks off. We hope you’ll find some time to enjoy the holdays as well. We’ll be back in the first full week of January.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to comment on these interviews or offer an idea for a future podcast, please call 617-440-4374. We’re all ears.
