  1. Predicting Death

    One of the toughest jobs a physician has is imparting bad news, and it is crucial for a physician to be able to predict death accurately when informing a patient. Despite various models developed to predict mortality, the evidence suggests that physicians perform poorly in this area.

  5. End-of-Life Discussions Do Not Affect Survival Rates

    Discussing and documenting patients’ preferences for care at the end of life does not cause them any harm, contrary to recent claims.

    For example, a new study in the Journal of Hospital Medicine found that patients who talk with their physicians about end-of-life care and have an advance directive in their medical record have similar survival rates as patients who do not have these discussions and documents.

  6. RIP … the Autopsy

    Once, the autopsy was a venerated tool for medical advancement and humility. An invaluable means of learning one’s own limitations and the extraordinary diversity in nature and human physiology, it has now become an un-reimbursed after-thought.

    An irrelevant thing, especially since the patient is already dead, there are living patients to care for, and people just need to “move on.”

  7. How Doctors Die

    Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. He had even invented a new procedure for this exact cancer that could triple a patient’s five-year-survival odds—from 5 percent to 15 percent—albeit with a poor quality of life. Charlie was uninterested. He went home the next day, closed his practice, and never set foot in a hospital again. He focused on spending time with family and feeling as good as possible.

    Several months later, he died at home. He got no chemotherapy, radiation, or surgical treatment. Medicare didn’t spend much on him.

  9. Doctors seek Hospira action on Execution Medication

    An international group of doctors is putting the squeeze on Hospira ($HSP) over a drug now being used for executions by U.S. death-penalty states.

    Writing in The Lancet, 25 physicians said Hospira should follow the example of Denmark’s Lundbeck, which restricted distribution of its anesthetic pentobarbital to keep it out of executioners’ hands.

  10. Assisted Dying Without the Doctor

    Dr. Lynda Young, former president of the Massachusetts Medical Society, spoke in March to a legislative committee considering a bill that would permit physicians to prescribe life-ending drugs to patients with a terminal illnesses. She cited the AMA’s long-standing policy: “Physician-assisted suicide is fundamentally incompatible with the physician’s role as healer.” Members of Young’s organization have repeatedly voted to object to such a change in their role.

  11. Medicare wants to pay doctors to talk about death. Expect political controversy

    The Obama administration plans to pay doctors to hold end-of-life planning conversations with patients, a controversial decision that will almost certainly revive the “death panel” debate that has long dogged the Affordable Care Act.

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/insurance/medicare-wants-to-pay-doctors-to-talk-about-death-expect-political-controversy/ar-AAcJocw?ocid=iehp

    Medicare rolled out new rules Wednesday (on page 246 of this document) that would reimburse physicians who talk to elderly patients about what options are available at the end of life — whether they would want life support, for example, or whether hospice care would be of interest. Doctors would get paid, under these new rules, for helping patients complete an advance directive.

    The reimbursements would begin in 2016.
