We’ll be joined by Michelle Young Doers to discuss her book, Killing for Profit: The Dark Side of Hospice. Michelle is a respiratory therapist who served for 5 years on the ethics committees of 4 major hospitals, she was a clinical instructor, and she worked on the front lines of health care during the SARS outbreak and the swine flu outbreak. In her work, she has played an important role in the living and/or dying of patients with prolonged illnesses and decisions about hospice. The point of her book is not to say that all hospice is bad. In fact, the concept of hospice is great. But, she will discuss the big business of hospice and how to prepare yourself for such a huge decision without being marketed to and manipulated.
