The Economist Covers Palliative Care

The Economist  put the issue of palliative care service quality as the main topic for the week on April 29, 2017. The article points out to the observable differences between what people express as their wishes about their deaths and what they get with the current medical system. The longer article provides more in-depth analysis of the way forward for positive change. It also presents some very interesting statistics related to generational changes in the experience of death and dying, the medical interventions that patients receive, and the changing medical culture. If you don’t have a subscription with the Economist you can still view three free articles every week.
