This week’s recommendation is from Joe Lex’s amazing #foamed site Free Emergency Medicine Talks.

It’s Indrani Sheridan (an Emergency Medicine Physician in Florida) discussing how we should deal with death.

Experiencing the death of a patient  is never easy, whether it’s expected or unexpected. And for the parents, losing a child is simply horrendous.

Often we don’t act as we should – through anxiety, stress or inexperience. This talk discusses the experiences of some families, and gives advice on simple steps we can take to make the process that little bit easier for the families involved.

If you only listen to one podcast this week. Make it this one.
