EP#48 - Questions You Need to be Asking
Play • 1 hr 3 min

Do you think you communicate well with your doctor? If you have a chronic condition do you understand how that is going to progress? Do you have a plan of what is likely to happen at each stage?

In this episode, I have the privilege of talking to a family physician who is inspiring other physicians, and patients, to be having those valuable end of life conversations in a way that acknowledges the limited timeframe most physicians are operating within.

Dr Forrest Jones has been in practice for over 40 years, earning his doctorate in medicine at the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and completing his Family Medicine residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago IL. He has worked in multiple practice settings, including self-employed private practice, employed fee-for-service and managed care, hospitalist, and home visit companies.

He was inspired to start CaringEnd while having medical power of attorney for his parents. Motivated to have end-of-life conversations with all his patients, he failed because of several barriers. His efforts to overcome these challenges led to a process with added benefits of reviving his passion and inspiring his patients.


You don’t want to miss:

  • The 3 top questions you should ask your doctor
  • What may prevent doctors from having end of life conversations with you
  • The impacts at various stages of your illness on you, emotionally, socially, and spiritually
  • What you can do to be proactive about your general practitioner or specialist visits

PLUS, the role of Dr Google in your care!
