As medical care has become more sophisticated, there is a great deal more we can do to keep people alive as they approach the end of life, and a great many more decisions to be made. Additionally, people are much less likely today to be cared for in their dying days by a family physician who knows them, their wishes, and their family well. Now, most dying hospitalized patients are cared for by hospitalists who may be meeting the patient for the first time.
