It is a thrill to have the opportunity to be published in Dr. Athena du Pre’ and Dr. Eileen Berlin Ray’s new text Real-Life Scenarios (A case study perspective on health communication). I want to thank Dr. du Pre’ for this outstanding opportunity. It wouldn’t have been possible without being part of the amazing strategic communication and leadership graduate program at the University of West Florida. I am forever grateful.
This was a great opportunity for me to co-author a chapter with the very talented Dr. Carma L. Bylund about the importance of proper communication between patient and physician when discussing DNR (do not resuscitate) orders. This is a very touchy conversation and needs to be handled with care. I hope you spend time to read Dr. Bylund and I’s chapter, “Should I Bring you Back to Life?” Communication About DNR Orders.
