“Despite the billions of dollars that are invested in new [medical] technologies, the most important intervention that happens in medicine today happens to be its least technological: timely and comprehensive discussions with patients as they near death.  What people need most on this journey is not the promise of the next new technology but rather a guide to help navigate the dark forest in which they will undoubtedly find themselves”
