Krauthammer on "The Truth About Death Counseling"

Our friend Christian Sinclair makes some good points about the realities of advance care planning in this post to his blog, Pallimed.

Dr. Sinclair participated in The Bioethics Channel podcast that focused on end of life care as a part of healthcare reform. It's a 15 minute 32 second segment with Myra Christopher of the Center for Practical Bioethics. It was recorded July 3, before "death panels" entered the public debate.

In my opinion Dr. Sinclair is kind to Krauthammer on this, too kind by half. He is prepared to value his own projections over the patient's expressed principles, and to violate medical ethics to do so - hardly something to be respected in a physician, however long he's been out of practice.
