Very important movie to watch

By A. Hoag

from Bozeman, MT

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Facing Death DVD:

This film shows, close up and personal, some of the difficult decisions facing those who are nearing the end of their life because of medical issues. These decisions are also shared with the patients family members.

This movie was a bit intense but a good motivation for starting the conversation with your family about how much medical intervention you would want and writing out your advanced directives.

Great DVD program! Everyone should watch this film to understand the issues facing loved ones caring for family members and appreciate the difficulties they experience when confronted with assessing and evaluating alternative options to prolonging life and considering the quality of prolonging that life.

Very accurate, well done a must see.

By Kitty

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Facing Death DVD:

Thank you Frontline for producing such an accurate and sensitive documentation on end of life decisions. You captured the struggle so sensitively and accurately that the patient and families face. The doctors were transparent in allowing us to feel their struggle as they face treatment vs. comfort in regards to what is best for the patient. A must see as we all at sometime will face these crucial decisions. Well done, plan to use this in my orientation program with hospice employees.
