An argument for a more palliative approach to death and dying

Background on the author


About the original book: Gawande’s book is a measured, insightful criticism of the medical model of end-of-life care. He convincingly shows that a palliative model of care not only improves the quality of our last days, but it even seems to prolong life better than its counterpart. Anyone interested in end-of-life issues, ethics, gerontology, or medicine will enjoy this book, but Gawande’s anecdotal style makes this an appealing, approachable listen for just about anyone. 

DISCLAIMER: This book is intended as a companion to, not a replacement for, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. ZIP Reads is wholly responsible for this content and is not associated with the original author in any way.
