Dallas Morning News: series on palliative care

This is quite a remarkable series of articles on end-of-life care and in particular palliative care at Baylor University Medical Center. Short of watching the amazing 6-hour documentary by Frederick Wiseman ("Near Death"), this is as close as most of us will get to the true in-hospital experience until it happens to one of us or someone we love. All of the articles are collected in one place, along with interactive tools and videos: At the Edge of Life: Life and death in 21st century medicine. I hope these links will work for a long time; the information and insights in these articles will be invaluable for many years to come.
