I Still Do

A Dignified End of Life

Filed under: palliative care — Judith Fox @ 12:54 pm

I have a “Google Alert” set to notify me when there are articles, blogs and reviews on “I Still Do.”  As a result of an alert I recently received, I was introduced to the Pallimed Blog which discusses issues around hospice care, palliative medicine and end of life issues.

The blog was founded by a palliative care physician, Drew Rosielle, MD and the contributors are health care professionals in the palliative care field.  I had personal experience with hospice care for both my parents and know how important and helpful it can be.  I can’t imagine what it would be like to face end-of-life issues and decisions without knowing there are health care professionals who devote their time to providing a measure of dignity for us as we face death.  This blog addresses those difficult issues, which many physicians are unable to handle.  I wanted to use this space to thank Dr. Rosielle and his colleagues around the country for doing such important work.  I’d also like to know how you feel about this issue.

If you want to check out their review of my book, it’s at: http://arts.pallimed.org/2010/01/i-still-do-loving-and-living-with.html
