4/9/12: The Best Care Possible

Salt Lake City, Utah – Monday, Doug talks to end-of-life care expert Ira Byock about his new book "The Best Care Possible." Dr. Byock says that the one thing worse than having someone we love die is having them die badly. That's why his work has steered clear of the "more-is-always-better" philosophy that results in so many Americans experiencing painful and dehumanizing deaths. We'll talk about practical solutions for reforming our health care system and why Byock is determined to put the "care" back in healthcare.
