Podcast 61: A conversation about end-stage dementia.

(2 votes, average: 3.00 out of 5)

We talk with Susan Mitchell, a Harvard researcher who set out to characterize the final clinical stages of advanced dementia. There are some surprises — namely, the benefit of clear communications with patients and their families (which, come to think of it, shouldn’t come as much of a surprise at all).

Talk with us at 1-617-440-4374 or write to jelia@nejm.org.
