Changing the Culture of Dying with Jessica Zitter

Many doctors are trained to do everything in their power to save the lives of their patients. But what if this is doing more harm than good? Dr. Jessica Zitter offers us a new way to rethink end of life care that looks beyond physical suffering to include healing emotions and spirit. By offering four things we can do to prepare for dying, she is helping to change the culture of palliative care through patient-focused outcomes. This means that a good death is the definition of success, rather than artificially prolonging one’s final moments.
