Whole Person Care: An Ethic of Care

On EthicsLab we often look at specific clinical ethical issues, tough choice dilemmas that patient and clinicians are involved in. In this episode we take a step back and look at the bigger picture…an ethic of care. How should someone be treated? Why are we asking this question today? What are some of the stories that makes this apparent? What are some of the tools and practices that are leading the way to honor patients and their human dignity? Our guests in this episode are two national experts in palliative care that will speak to us about “Whole Person Care”. Dr. Ira Byock, Founder and Chief Medical Officer at the Institute for Human Caring at Providence St Joseph Health and Dr. Mimi Pattison, Medical Director of Palliative Care at CHI Franciscan.
