Dr Jessica Zitter

What is a good death? Do doctors and nurses die differently to their patients? Why are we so afraid to talk about death, especially with our children?

Join Stephanie as she talks with Dr. Jessica Zitter, MD, MPH who practices the unusual combination of Critical and Palliative Care medicine at Highland Hospital in Oakland, California.

Jessica is co-founder of Vital Decisions, a telephone-based counselling service for patients with life-limiting illness and the author of the new book, Extreme Measures Finding a Better Path to the End of Life, by Penguin published in February 2017.  She is a regular contributor to the New York Times and is featured in the Academy Award nominated documentary Extremis.

 

This series has been co-produced by Stephanie Longmuir On-air presenter in collaboration with Family Matters @ Joy 94.9
