Dr. Gawande is a renowned surgeon, researcher and author of acclaimed books The Checklist Manifesto and Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. In the latter, he illustrates how modern medicine has led to the cure for many illnesses, but physicians are still left grappling with how to ensure these treatments align with the quality of life patients desire in both health and sickness. Partnering with Sound Physicians CEO Robert Bessler, MD, these two health care leaders will share an insightful webcast about how to treat patients in a way that not only honors their health, but their quality of life.

Attendees can expect to learn how to engage patients and families in hard conversations, remarkable ways caregivers have overcome limitations within the health care system, and how to apply these principles to their own practices and hospitals.
