We have a special segment on that topic from EMS World Expo’s Physio-Control Podcast Studio. If that’s what you’re looking for, you found it, right here on this week’s episode of the MedicCast.

MedicCast Episode 454

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. In this week’s episode of the MedicCast I have a special segment recorded last week at the EMS World Expo 2015 conference in Las Vegas where I invited paramedic and fire captain Tom Bouthillet and paramedic educator Amy Eisenhower on the show in the podcast studio to talk about death and dying in the EMS environment.

This is all based on an article I looked at on the show recently this summer looking at how a doctor expressed difficulty being honest with cancer patients about their true terminal outlook. If doctors are having trouble with this, what does that say for the paramedics and EMTs out there having to notify families and patients of bad news all the time. We’ll find out soon coming up in this episode.
