Author Dr. Mangalik discusses his book on the medical culture of denial surrounding terminal illness.

Retired oncologist Dr. Mangalik, author of Dealing with Doctors, Denial and Death, discusses our medical culture of denial when faced with terminal illness, the medical professional’s role in treating patients and end of life care, and a patient’s options and role in these decisions. His goal is to help patients and families make informed decisions that may help the seriously ill live better with their illnesses.
