KBYU Television to air documentary on end-of-life decision-making March 31

In support of ongoing discussions around end-of-life care, KBYU Television (Channel 11) will air the documentary "Who's Death Is It Anyway?" on Thursday, March 31, at 9 p.m. The program will also be rebroadcast on Sunday, April 3, at 11 p.m. and Monday, April 4, at 8 p.m.

"Whose Death Is It Anyway?" emphasizes the importance of personal involvement in decisions about one's care at the end of life. Highlighting the types of treatment many people receive, it realistically explores the difficulties surrounding end-of-life decision-making through five documentary segments that feature families sharing their own discussions and experiences.

The program's goal is to increase and improve discussion among patients, families and health care providers and to help people ensure that their wishes are heard and honored.

The program examines:

  • Patients' legal rights

  • Family conflicts about end-of-life decisions

  • Advance directives

  • Palliative (comfort) care

  • Dying at home, in hospital or with hospice care For more information, contact Jim Bell, BYU Television, 801-422-8427.
