End of Life in the Emergency Room MP3

Dr. Arthur Derse, director of medical and legal affairs and associate director of the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Center for the Study of Bioethics, explains why ER physicians, traditionally trained to "not just stand there, do something," tend to ignore issues of autonomy and informed consent. The original reasons for proceudres like resuscitation were in response to life-threatening conditions, not necessarily for people with a terminal diagnosis and a treatment plan. Dr. Derse describes the program he created, End of Life Education for Professionals in End of Life Care, which includes training in comfort and palliative care. (July 17, 2009)
