National Health Care Decisions Day April 16th

In honor of National Health Care Decisions  Day, which seeks to promote advance care planning,  I share with you an article explaining the benefits of seeking out Palliative care. This is the opinion  expressed by  a colleague, Dr. Daniel Pomerantz, Director of Palliative Care, Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital.

 

He reminds us of Dr. Atul Gawande recommendations in his book, "Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End," to encourage patients coping with serious illness, their families and their doctors to understand the patient's answers to the following questions:

 

• What is your understanding of where you are and of your illness?

• What are your fears or worries for the future?

• What are your goals and priorities?

• What outcomes are unacceptable to you?

• What are you willing to sacrifice and not?

• What would a good day look like?
