The Importance of the End-of-Life Talk

doi: 10.1097/01.EEM.0000513596.03026.8d

    Editor:

    Thank you, Dr. Joseph Cruz, for elegantly and succinctly stating the challenging decision not to do everything. (“I Let My Dad Die,” EMN 2016;38[11A]; http://bit.ly/2fiF7MB.) It is much harder than it looks. As physicians, we need to learn to guide families through end-of-life decisions and learn not to avoid these difficult conversations.
