AMSA Ampoule: The podcast where we discuss the things you don’t cover in med school
A/ Prof. Charlie Corke is one of Australia’s leading Intensive Care Specialists and the past President of the College of Intensive Care of Australia and New Zealand. Charlie is passionate about Advanced Care Planning and lectures widely on medical communication and end-of-life decision making. In this episode, Charlie generously sat down with our Academic Officer, Liss, to discuss some key concepts about patient-centred care, and particularly how to implement this approach to the end of a patient’s life. He shared practical tips on how to actively involve patients, their loved ones and colleagues in conversations surrounding end-of-life decision making, even in a disease-focussed clinical environment. To find out more on end-of-life care, you can find Charlie’s book, Letting go here!
