Miri Navasky in Frontline: Facing Death

Frontline: Facing Death

2010 NR

This powerful installment of the long-running PBS series takes a look at the complex -- and often agonizing -- end-of-life decisions that must be made by physicians, those facing the prospect of death and their loved ones. Doctors, patients and families discuss key issues such as when to disconnect a breathing tube, when to continue treatment, when to bring in hospice and the affordability of the mounting costs associated with end-of-life care.
