I participated in a podcast about healthcare reform. We first listened to a Q&A between Dr. Val and Dr. Bob Goldberg at CMPI-Advance. After that we were invited to ask questions.
Dr. Goldberg is into policy, not bedside healthcare, so I think my question threw him for a loop. I asked about futile care and how it fits in with healthcare reform. His answer took on a very strong “ethics” angle, which is not the direction I had intended for my question to go!
Despite my derailment, the other bloggers that participated in the call asked excellent questions – they are Kim, RN from Emergiblog, Dr. Wes Fisher, Dr. Edwin Leap, The Happy Hospitalist, and Dr. Brian Vartabedian.
You can listen to the podcast at Better Health. Thanks Dr. Val for the opportunity to participate!
