Dr Haider Warraich is interviewed by Terry Gross about how ignorant we are about the modern ways of dying and the great toll this lack of experience costs our culture daily in so many ways.

How much is too much CPR?  What age is CPR not recommended because a patient will have no quality of life afterwards? How do doctor’s cope with the various wishes of patients in crisis situations? How can we as a culture be more aware of death as a fact of life and the great cost of hope that is not matched my realism?

This is a terrific interview and may take you to an independent bookstore to buy his book.

A great listen with family and friends to elicit a profound discussion about end of life care and your wishes for just the end you most hope to have.
