This is a quick shout out to my good friend, fellow GP Anaesthetist and all round nice chap – Dr Johnathon Ramechederan.
He has co-authored this great article in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management with fellow Albany doctor Kirsten Auret. It is about how we treat patients with surgical needs towards the end of life.
Johnathon has a great passion for the compassionate and rational management of older patients and manages to combine his Anaesthetic and Palliative care knowledge to negotiate some of the most difficult situations that we face as hospital clinicians.
Please have a read of the article (linked here) and comment, ask questions and let us know how you manage these important moments in medicine.
