    of her life She would have rested peacefully at home with her family beside her until she passed Today however there is always more we can do Because we can treat the pieces of Marilyn s condition we believe the whole may be salvable Thus despite all the care she has received despite all the doctors and tests and medications no one has told her she is dying My assessment that she is dying is based on a careful review of her condition and the treatment options available Marilyn has advanced diastolic heart failure and stage III kidney disease She has chronic anemia and recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding She is frail a well described marker of poor prognosis and has become more frail with each hospitalization She frequently develops wet lungs and swollen ankles from heart failure her condition unresponsive to oral medications at home Treatment of heart failure for her requires hospitalization and many days of high dose intravenous diuretics This tethers her to an IV pole restricting mobility shrinking her already dwindling muscle mass It would be very easy for us to tell Marilyn she can be treated We could recommend a fifth hospitalization for the year a course that would lead to more tests and medications She would be unhappy but she would accept our recommendation She trusts us and looks to us to guide her But I do not believe another hospitalization would improve Marilyn s life in a significant way I am aware of how costly hospitalization would be not only in dollars but in time If we accept that Marilyn has a limited number of days remaining a fifth hospitalization would force her to spend some of those precious days among strangers away from home in a sterile hospital room She would have to remove her clothing putting on a hospital gown An intravenous line would be placed a procedure that has caused pain and bruising for her in the past Well intentioned nurses and doctors would cause discomfort by prodding her belly and legs to examine her In short she would be dehumanized in her final days During a time when her life spirit should be celebrated it would instead be marginalized We choose a different path With kindness compassion and respect we tell Marilyn that she is dying We explain the multiple advanced conditions affecting her body We tell her that further curative treatment while always an option has a very low likelihood of meaningful results and may make her feel worse We encourage her to think about her goals If these are your final days how do you want to spend them We explain what hospice means Although her condition may be terminal her symptoms can be relieved She does not have to suffer any longer As it turns out Marilyn is not surprised by what we say A sharp and intelligent woman she knows that her aged body is nearing the end She is thankful for our honesty Turning from us

    winner Justin Baker MD FAAP at St Jude Children s in Memphis for example reported that he was named head of the unit and got the OK on 2 FTE s immediately after the announcement of his award thus pushing St Jude s commitment to the public sphere In another example Baxter cites senior award winner Dr Janet Bull chief medical officer and principal investigator of Four Seasons a nonprofit hospice and palliative care organization that serves the Hendersonville and Asheville regions of western North Carolina Dr Bull is directing her entire 25 000 award to the Four Seasons Hospice sister organization in Zambia Awards programs that work do exactly what we see with Drs Baker and Bull they have a definitive ripple effect affecting not just winners but also leveraging their ideas hopes and passions for the benefit of others For early career physician winners such as Savithri Nagaswaran MBBS DCH MPH director of the pediatric palliative care program at Brenner Children s Hospital at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem N C the awards instill confidence that can make a huge difference in an already promising career As Baxter notes Physicians like Savi are really laying down the gauntlet for the future of this area of medicine And believe me these young docs get the ramifications of what they are doing in terms of medical economics and national policy They plan to change the world and we are giving them even more confidence Public recognition of people who are changing the world of care at end of life is an awesome venture It puts faces on what good doctoring at the end of life looks like It gives me and others who care about improving healthcare for aging advanced illness populations the ability to point and say definitively This is what it looks like this is how it can be for you In the scheme of things the Foundation s awards program is a relatively modest undertaking As Baxter explains We do not have the financial resources of many other foundations But our goals are lofty and meaningful and we have passion about our endeavor We believe that we can make a difference And I believe that too These awards are making a difference Yes it s an individual competition honoring physicians and only a few are chosen each year But the ripple effect creates broader impact This year the awards committee is especially interested in broadening the field of nominations to include not just palliative care or hospice docs but also physicians in primary care geriatrics or other fields that address the needs of aging advanced chronic illness populations So spread the word tell your friends colleagues patients and their family members to nominate a worthy physician Post the announcement on Twitter and Tumblr and Facebook Good doctoring needs to be recognized who would you choose as your nominee Nominations for this year s Hastings Center Cunniff Dixon Physician Awards will be accepted through
