Dr. Jessica Nutik Zitter's book "Extreme Measures" focuses on how she helps care for those at the end of their lives.

Dr. Jessica Nutik Zitter joins us to talk about her book Extreme Measures: Finding a Better Path to the End of Life. She discusses her career path from wanting to be an ICU physician to becoming a doctor who specializes in palliative care. 

She writes about her own realization that the old and the ill are put on what she calls the “End-of-Life Conveyor belt,” and details how she works with patients, families and caregivers.
