Horizon: How to Die a Better Death

Season 1, Episode 1 of 1

How should we approach medical treatment when we're dying? It's a question we all have to face, but avoid talking about. Thanks to advances in modern medicine, doctors are better equipped to fight many life-threatening diseases. Their focus is saving lives. Death is something to battle against, right until the bitter end. But, instead of trying to defeat death, should we be more focused on quality of life? In this film, Dr Kevin Fong makes a personal journey through the moral questions around death. He meets medical professionals whose work is shaping the debate, and people facing the dilemma of how to die a better death.
