Wishes to Die For with Kevin J. Haselhorst, MD
Join Dr. Karen Wyatt and her guest, ER physician Kevin J. Haselhorst MD, as they discuss the ER being the gateway death and dying in the hospital setting. Dr. Haselhorst will present stories from his emergency room experiences that led him to create his own template for a Universal Healthcare Directive and his concept of "Omega Care" rather than hospice care.
In this interview you will learn:
- the role of Advance Care Directives in the emergency room setting
- how proper preparation can ensure dignity at the end-of-life
- how "Omega Care" would differ from traditional hospice care and why these differences are important
- why Advance Care Directives should include a "Will to Die"
