Physician-Assisted Death with Author, Katie Engelhart

The topic of physician-assisted death is both sensitive and complex. It involves medical ethics, state law, and religion. In this SoundPractice episode we will explore the status and facets related to physician-assisted death. Through the lens of states that permit physician-assisted suicide, veteran journalist and healthcare author Katie Engelhart guide the discussion.  Her new book, The Inevitable: Dispatches on the Right to Die was released earlier this year. This episode aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the topic with insights from Ms. Engelhart, an award-winning documentary film correspondent, a past producer at NBC News, and a foreign correspondent for VICE News. Her book, The Inevitable moves beyond margins of the law to the people who are meticulously planning their final hours—far from medical offices, legislative chambers, hospital ethics committees, and polite conversation.
