TEDMED: The 20 Great Challenges of Health and Medicine


I wanted to bring to the attention of the Pallimed community that TEDMED is sponsoring a series of discussions on a new interactive minisite: The 20 Great Challenges of Health and Medicine. The purpose of the series is to elicit multiple perspectives and interaction with thought leaders on some of the large, complex problems in health in medicine that effect us all.

One of the first 6 online discussions active right now is on The Caregiver Crisis

"Coming soon" will be an online discussion on Coming to Grips with End-of-Life Care

It is interesting to note that so far the only TEDMED presentation that has been explicitly about EOL decision-making is this one by Alexandra Drane, the driving force behind Engage With Grace. Perhaps someone out there in Pallimed-land has a big idea to pitch.

Cheers!
