About this title

Synopsis:

“Charles Radey explores numerous crises and difficulties common to us all from a standpoint of deep caring and true understanding. It is this underlying compassion that makes Choosing Wisely a treasured guide and reference book rather than just a work of valuable information.”
–Hugh Prather

“This beautifully written book weaves its way through touching case histories (and even the writings of Tolstoy) to carve out a clear and logical path. Families and physicians who struggle with ethical decisions regarding treatment will find this guide invaluable.”
–Abraham Verghese, M.D.
Professor of Medicine, Texas Tech University
Suppose a loved one has fallen seriously ill and you are now responsible for all decisions regarding medical treatment.

Most important of all, will the decisions you make reflect the desires of the patient?

Medical ethicist Dr. Charles Radey urgest the reader to reflect on life when confronting issues of mortality. In straightforward, comforting language he gives us the basic tols necessary to make informed decisions during medical crises, for ourselves and our loved ones.
