Stop by her site starting this Wednesday to see what great blog finds she has been able to dig up.

Also of note, GeriPalis hosting Palliative Care Grand Rounds on Wednesday, October 7th!

  1. Great post at the Health Affairs Blog about key geriatrics and palliative care issues in proposed health reform legislation. They interview Christine Cassel, MD, President American Board of Internal Medicine, Diane Meier, MD, Director of Center to Advance Palliative Care, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and Jerald Winakur, MD, Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics at University of Texas.

  2. Hi All, I read this last night on the NY Times and remember reading this short story in high school and how much it troubled me then. I wonder if this disquiet is related to the psychic suffering I feel when I see patients suffer in the ICU. Check out this lovely blog post, Prolonging Death at the End of Life .

  3. I am fond of reading Larry Beresford http://growthhouse.typepad.com/larry_beresford/
    He is a "a freelance medical writer and health care journalist with an unprecedented breadth of experience writing about the policy, financial, clinical, administrative and human aspects of hospice, palliative care, end-of-life care, death and dying". He's an active tweeter, really wish he'd blog more often. His latest tweet includes a link to the newly published OIG report on medicare hospice care in nursing facilities.
