Death Panels

Listen
AIR DATE: September 21, 2009

The health care debate has created ugly rhetoric about the government creating death panels about who should live and die. But how are those end of life decisions made now? Who makes the decision? What issues do doctors focus on in telling the patient and his or her family when further medical intervention is pointless? And what options are there to ease the pain or even speed up an inevitable death? We ask those questions of Dr. Lisa Marie Lyons of Nathan Adelson Hospice and Dr. Misti Song of the University of Nevada Medical School.
