ESAIC Education Tuesday Podcast Series by ESAIC

Episode notes

Is it Futile to talk about Futility? The concept of medical futility has existed for millennia. While the dialogue and definitions surrounding this topic are useful, using the word 'futility' in the context of withdrawal or withholding treatment may be problematic. Learn more about this topic in our newly released episode with Host Dr Paul McConnell and Guest Dr Sonya Daniel, where they discuss why we should not only look into the 'medical best interest' of the patient but the 'best interests as a whole'.
