End of Life Care in the ICU (Encore)
This is an encore for a previous episode of Critical Matters. One in five US residents receives ICU care at the end of life. In this episode, we discuss different aspects of end of life care in the ICU. Our guest is Dr. BJ Miller, a physician, author, and speaker. He is a practicing hospice and palliative medicine physician and is best known for his 2015 TED Talk, "What Really Matters at the End of Life." BJ has been on the teaching faculty at UCSF School of Medicine since 2007. He is a powerful advocate for the role of our senses, community, and presence in delivering palliative care and for ushering in a new perspective on living with death.
