Where is the line between 'enough' and 'too much' treatment? That is the topic of Sharon Kaufman's book that explores how any technology or practice that prevents death became the ordinary standard of care. She and palliative care doctor Dawn Gross discuss how improving technologies for extending life intensify debates about the issues surrounding aging and dying. Recorded on 05/25/2017. (#32348)
