Good article on the Opinion page: “Improving the end” by Jerry Brady
Jerry introduces his article with the words of David M. Walker, co-chairman of a committee on medicine within the National Academy of Science,
The United States health care system is poorly designed to meet the needs of patients near the end of life. [It] is geared towards doing more, more, more and not necessarily consistent with what patients want.
Let me gently suggest that the only thing hospitals can do is put band-aids on the physical struggles we face. Eventually, we all will die. And that is where pastors have such important jobs. You share the good news in helping Idahoans in this city cross over with peace in Christ. May God increase your tribe. May you magnify your calling.
