About the Event

The Revolution of Humanity in Care Starts at the End of Life

Everyone will experience the end of life. No one knows when it will happen. We can’t interview anyone who has experienced it. We can’t iterate or prototype our own end of life. Yet it requires intention, empathy, communication, and options — even creativity. How might we design a more coherent conclusion of a person’s own narrative that is peaceful and uplifting?

Dell Medical School and the Design Institute for Health invite you to please join us for special community screening and conversation of the Oscar-Nominated, Netflix original documentary “End Game” on Monday April 15, 6-8 p.m. at Dell Medical School.

The New York Times calls “End Game” a provocative and intimate look at how doctors, nurses, and patients cope with death. Following the screening, producer Shoshanna Ungerleider, M.D., and a panel of Dell Med palliative care providers, designers, medical students, and community members will engage in a thoughtful discussion about the film and what we can learn from palliative care at the end of life about bringing the revolution of humanity into health care.
