Episode 2: A Beautiful Death

What do seniors really want when they’re dying? Asking them, and listening carefully to what they say, could lead – surprisingly – to cost-savings for big government systems like Medicare. Guests include a Duke health policy expert, Donald H. Taylor, who asked terminally ill people: what if you had to choose between last-ditch therapies and the simple things? Their answers might surprise you.

Also, a Durham, N.C., woman describes how she faced hard choices as she comforted her dying mom.
