Avoiding Iatrogenic Consulting


Published on

This session is dedicated to the possibility that consultants should adhere to the Hippocratic aath of Primum non nocere, a Latin phrase that means "First, do no harm." This is more difficult then it seems because we have been "trained" to intervene. If you are interested in having a dialogue about this idea, you are invited to attend this session led by Ed Kless, Sage senior director of partner development and strategy.

  • Healer Causedhttp://thehealthcareblog.com/blog/2012/08/06/how-doctors-die/How Doctors DieBy Ken Murray MDYears ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. He had even invented a new procedure for this exact cancer that could triple a patient’s five-year-survival odds—from 5 percent to 15 percent—albeit with a poor quality of life. Charlie was uninterested. He went home the next day, closed his practice, and never set foot in a hospital again. He focused on spending time with family and feeling as good as possible. Several months later, he died at home. He got no chemotherapy, radiation, or surgical treatment. Medicare didn’t spend much on him.It’s not a frequent topic of discussion, but doctors die, too. And they don’t die like the rest of us. What’s unusual about them is not how much treatment they get compared to most Americans, but how little. For all the time they spend fending off the deaths of others, they tend to be fairly serene when faced with death themselves. They know exactly what is going to happen, they know the choices, and they generally have access to any sort of medical care they could want. But they go gently.
