The Best Care Possible

Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with end-of-life care expert Ira Byock, who says that the one thing worse than having someone we love die is having them die badly. That's why his work has steered clear of the "more-is-always-better" philosophy that results in so many Americans experiencing painful and dehumanizing deaths. We'll talk about practical solutions for reforming our health care system and why Byock is determined to put the "care" back in healthcare. His book is called "The Best Care Possible," and it's out in paperback next week. (Rebroadcast)
