As we approach the 40th anniversary of the Medicare hospice benefit, we stand at an important reflection point to evaluate end-of-life care and map its future. In this new series, we gather leaders and thinkers from a range of disciplines to explore our needs at the end of life, how they have changed over time and how care models need to adapt. We hope you enjoy this new series and today's first episode and that it inspires positive change in how we care for one another at the end of life.

In today's episode, Husch Blackwell’s Meg Pekarske engages in a meaningful conversation with Dr. Janet Bull exploring how best to relieve suffering at the end of life and her reflections on what death has to teach us about living. Janet’s perspective is profoundly unique and is informed by being a witness to both the beginning of life – as an obstetrician-gynecologist – and toward the end of life as a hospice physician and Chief Medical Officer of Four Seasons, a nationally recognized leader in caring for those with serious illness. Janet has devoted the second half of her medical career to end-of-life care. In this episode, Janet shares what her life’s work has taught her on how we care for the dying, how it has evolved over time and what remains our greatest hurdles to ensuring good deaths. See less -
