Assisted Suicide, Part 1

In part one of our special two-part series on physician-assisted suicide, guest Dr. Lonny Shavelson, a physician and proponent of medical-aid-in-dying laws, joined us. In this part two episode, we talk with Dr. Brian Callister, a physician with an opposing viewpoint on this controversial but important issue.

A nationally recognized expert in hospital care transitions and end-of-life care, Dr. Callister is a board-certified internal medicine and hospitalist specialist. He is a Professor of Medicine and the Director of Rural Medical Education for the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. He is also the Governor of Nevada for the American College of Physicians. Dr. Callister previously served as the National Medical Director, Chief Medical Officer, and Senior Physician Executive for LifeCare Hospitals, one of the country’s largest long-term acute care hospital systems, from 2004 until April of 2016.

Dr. Callister will discuss why he and others oppose physician-assisted suicide laws and how these laws have a wide-ranging impact on our healthcare system and patients.
