Please join Dr. Lesandrini and Hospice of South Georgia as we discuss ethical dilemas at the end of life, and dive into various obstacles patients, families, and doctors experience in hospitals and hospices around the country.  As many healthcare professionals continually face ethical dilemmas regarding end of life planning or discussion, we will explore various cases and avenues in ethics to further advocate for patient's wishes.
