Confronting Death

Vinoth Chandar

Death can be scary, difficult and painful, but it can also be a healing and beautiful process. How does one have a "good death?"

Host Charity Nebbe looks at hospice and palliative care in Iowa. Dr. Tim Thomsen, the interim director of Palliative Care at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, HCI Hospice Care Services social worker Beth Brauer, and registered nurse Renee Welhousen of Hospice of North Iowa join the conversation.

Charity Nebbe is the host of IPR's Talk of Iowa
