Recommended: A touching story by Perri Klass, M.D. in the New England Journal of Medicine about how it feels to carry a doctor’s responsibility. In the case of Dr Klass, a pediatrician, that means weighing a decision that’s probably trivial – but might be a matter of life and death … for a child.
It’s particularly useful for health management execs and health policy wonks like yours truly. It helps to keep the endgame – health, life, death – clearly in focus.
