Los Angeles Times Series on End-of-Life Care

There is a great series of three articles on end-of-life care that appears in the Los Angeles Times. I was interviewed for the article, “Hospice care helps patients and loved ones” that ran in print January 25. The writers for the pieces spoke with many well known names in the field. There are some very poignant photographs that accompany the series as well.

Media attention to the range of issues involving care at the end-of-life are always important and this series, which is available on the LA Times website, will certainly provide a great deal of helpful information to those not familiar with some of the issues involved in care at the end of life.

I was pleased to see that NHPCO's Caring Connections website,, was offered as a resource for those looking for advance directives and information on advance care planning.
