End-of-Life Care

The bitter division over the care of Terry Schiavo exploded from the confines of her family onto the national and global stage. The case touched politics, law, medicine, the media and the court of public opinion.

It's been almost a year since Schiavo died, and over 30 years since our society first started struggling with making rules on dying. How far have we come? And did the Schiavo case help us reach consensus, or just muddy the waters? We'll try to better understand the state of end-of-life care.
