Description:
Jennifer S. Temel, MD of Mass General Hospital - Harvard Medical School explains how engaging patients talk about end of life care could actually cut costs. Dr. Temel says that the discussion of cost dont come in patient-clinician communication about the end of life care. However, data suggests that discussion of end of life care to patients actually helps them receive less costly care at the end of life. This discussion helps patients make informed decisions. They will less likely go to hospitals and emergency rooms and are more likely to receive less costly hospital services before they die.
