A few weeks ago, I blogged about a new website by Australian ICU nurse Patrik Hutzel, Intensive Care Hotline.
Intensive Care Hotline is directed at family members who have a critically ill loved one in Intensive Care. Hutzel's goal is to empower family members so that they can exercise power, influence decision making and stay in control of this challenging and difficult situation.
I recently did a podcast with Patrik Hutzel on medical futility. He is well-informed and asked great questions. My answers may be equally intelligent.
