uthor Stephen Kiernan interviewed
terminally ill patients and their families
from all walks of life as well as hundreds
of physicians. His research is supported
by his personal experience and what he
learned from the very different deaths of
his own mother and father.
He will share why so many patients
experience “bad deaths” and using a mix
of hard data and illustrational storytelling,
Mr. Kiernan will provide insight that
will inspire dialogue among patients,
caregivers and medical professionals. This
dialogue about “What Matters Most” will
help everyone to be able to honor their
own wishes and the wishes of those they
love, a gift truly worthy of exploring.
