end-of-life

JoAnn Mar

The average life span has nearly doubled during the last century.  But while people are living longer, they're now facing health challenges that were less prevalent before—severe chronic illness, cancer, lung disease, dementia, and Alzheimer's—debilitating conditions that often cause great pain and suffering. 

Estate Planning -- A discussion of POLSTs (Physicians Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) which is a system that identifies patients' wishes and directives regarding medical treatment.
Guests: Estate Planning Attorney Jana Ellerman, a Member of the Executive Committee of the Trusts & Estates Section of the State Bar; and Dr. Lael Conway Duncan, Medical Director of Consulting Services of the Coalition For Compassionate Care of California.
