***IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WEBINAR #11 (End of Life Communication)***  The webinar time will be focused on a discussion of the issues presented in the videos below, so it is recommended that you view them prior to viewing the webinar. 

The video Being Mortal contains actual patients and their families and may be difficult for some to view. 

Required Viewing:

FRONTLINE, Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal    time: 54:11

FRONTLINE follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In conjunction with Gawande's new book, “Being Mortal”, the film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors -- himself included -- are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

Web Link to documentary:  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/being-mortal/   

The Indiana POST Form in Action           time: 9:25

The Indiana POST Program is a new advance care planning tool that helps ensure treatment preferences are honored. It is designed for patients with serious illness. Preferences for life sustaining treatments including resuscitation, medical interventions (e.g., comfort care, hospitalization, intubation, and mechanical ventilation), antibiotics, and artificial nutrition are documented as medical orders on the POST form. It must be reviewed and signed by a physician to be activated. This form transfers throughout the health care system and the orders are valid in all settings.
