American medicine's success has created a new problem. That is, the vast majority of patients can now expect to die in a place and in a way that most wouldn't choose if only asked. Talking about dying, which is as natural as birth, is now taboo. And, the reality is patients and families are suffering needlessly. It is a problem we never intended to create and one that must be solved, but how? 21 months in the making and entirely funded by private donations, Consider the Conversation 2: Stories about Cure, Relief, and Comfort explores the effect of American medicine's success on the patient/doctor relationship and sheds light on the important role communication plays in helping both patient and doctor navigate the murky waters of severe chronic disease.
