In this podcast we hear from Professor Atul Gawande - a surgeon, writer, and public health researcher. Atul introduces us to Peg, his daughter's piano teacher, who is dying and faces choices around quality versus quantity of life. He describes how Peg and her husband Martin consider her preferences for care and the trade-offs that allow her to be at home and be in control of her symptoms. Atul describes what matters in the end, and how the priorities and preferences of the individual are key and that having conversations earlier makes a huge difference to patients, their families and caregivers. He describes the evidence base, the challenges, and also offers many practical approaches and tools that might just help you in your work.
