Geriatric realism


  1. I love this! I thought this was hilarious but I know it's not meant to be funny exactly. You can;t really stop the aging process, but there are limtations that health professionals have in curing the old.

  2. Right. And that's kinda what Atul Gawande is saying in his book: we don't want to acknowledge those limitations, but failing to do so is dishonest and inhumane.

  3. The look of shock on the patient's face is perfect. That's exactly what I would look like.

    "And how do I go about doing that, doctor?"
