By way of background, last night PBS’s Frontline aired their documentary “Being Mortal,” with Dr. Atul Gawande.
Being Mortal examines how doctors can help terminally ill patients make the most of the time they have left. Should they undergo any treatment, no matter how agonizing, in order to stay alive? Or should they try to spend as much quality time as possible with the people they love.
