Aequanimitas [Videorecording]

[presented by] the University of Virginia School of Medicine
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
Marcia Day Childress, Ph.D. (Moderator), introduced the Koppaka lecture and speaker. Pauline W. Chen, M.D., F.A.C.S. (Author or "Final Exam: A Surgeon's Reflections on Mortality" (Alfred A. Knopf, 2007), Haverhill, Massachusettes) addressed the question: "How do physicians deal with death." Chen illustrated, with a personal story, the facets of communication, caring, and doing a job. Using an 1889 Osler speech where Osler described the composure needed for a physician ("aequanimitas") and a letter by John Keats (1817) to his brother referencing "negative capability," Chen presented the values/skills in learning to live with ambiguity, paradox, and humility in order to practice "compassionate end of life care."
