    Wonderfully put. I ran a hospice 20 years ago, and we are still struggling to catch up with what has been learned about palliative care and simple, all-around human care. Let’s fight to integrate this at every point in the system.
    And, yes, as KathyPooler says, it comes down to listening which does come down to humility.

    Yes, Danny, it is worth it. IMHO, it boils down to the fine art of listening. Here’s an excellent TED talk by Dr Sayantani Das Gupta from Columbia University on “Narrative Humility”, a topic near and dear my heart . I’ll be doing a post on this very topic on my blog on 3/24:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZ3ucjmcZwY&feature=share. Thanks for asking all the right questions, my friend.
