Palliative Care Grand Rounds is up at the greatest blog written by a law professor about medical ethics and decision making with life threatening illness, "Medical Futility" by Thaddeus Pope, J.D., Ph.D. He cranks out a ton of great information on his blog featuring very interesting court cases. His grand rounds post is a classic covering many great hospice and palliative care blogs.
Go comment over at Medical Futility and seek out the other blog posts featured in Grand Rounds. Share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and your IDT.
As for Thaddeus' blog, if you EVER give a talk on Medical Futility or Ethics and DON'T reference/highlight his blog, I won't consider you to be an expert who knows what they are talking about. (Redundant last point, but worth it.)
