Consider the Conversation provides a 360-degree view of end-of-life care. It features the perspectives of three terminally ill patients in their fifties and the professionals who typically care for these people—doctors, nurses, social workers, and clergy—as well as several leading national experts. Consider the Conversation does not provide the viewer with any particular answer—instead, it provides something far more important—some of the questions we all need to think about and answer for ourselves. As such, Consider the Conversation aligns beautifully with the concept of advance care planning which is all about the process of talking with patients about their end-of-life wishes, documenting them, and aligning care with those wishes.
