Dr. Kim Fischer is a board-certified physician anesthesiologist and the founder of Lucid, an advanced care planning coaching service. She has practiced medicine for over ten years and supported countless families through difficult conversations and decisions. These experiences have proven to Dr. Fischer the tremendous value of engaging in end-of-life conversations in times of health.

In this heartfelt conversation, Dr. Fischer and I discuss:

  • How advance care planning is usually done and why its suboptimal.
  • What is a better way to start conversations about sickness and dying.
  • How our death-adverse culture negatively affects patients and physicians.
  • Why talking about death helped her overcome the fear of dying.

Tune in to hear how talking about this uncomfortable topic can help physicians live more meaningful and fulfilling lives now.
