“The Oncologist as Oncology Patient”
SEP 29, 2010
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Barbara Berman is the widow of Dr. Jack H. Berman, a long time Associate Clinical Professor at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. As Dr. Berman approached what he knew was the end of his life, he gave a lecture about his experiences as a patient to some first and second year medical students.
His very informal presentation, “The Oncologist as the Oncology Patient,” was videotaped. Because he intended to give medical students more understanding of how their patients might experience being on the other side of the desk, Mrs. Berman made it available after he died of pancreatic cancer 2-1/2 months later. For more than seven years, she has continued to share it, and comments from her special perspective, with professionals and the public who are concerned with end of life quality issues.
