Format
Video; DVD; Online
Summary
Gregory Gramelspacher, M.D. (Associate Professor of Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana) described the needs of the dying poor and the place of philanthropy. He read a poem by Jack Gilbert entitled, "By small and small: midnight to 4 a.m." to illustrate the importance of "presence" and communication with the dying person and their family. Dr. Gramelspacher postulated that good palliative care is preventive ethics consultation in practice. Through faces and stories of real people, Dr. Gramelspacher paints the picture of "dying well" both in Indianapolis and in Kenya. Rebecca Dillingham, M.D. (Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Internal Medicine, University of Virginia) shares her ambivalent thoughts regarding the dying of the poor, from diseases that are curable. She described the dichotomy between dying in a country with "great wealth" versus "profound poverty."
