Phyllis commented on Death on the ICU

Amen, Katy.  And of course if families are deeply communicating and understand process and patient wishes they are less likely to rush to the Emergency Room (where the next step often is the ICU).  Talk to each other.  And be brave. We need to remember that death is as natural as birth.  Dying is not  always a medical emergency

Hi Dave, thanks for writing.  I think yours is a model that would benefit this project overall.  The Zen Buddhist approach to dying (and living) focuses on cultivating peace.  What could be better in the dying process?  I'm grateful for what you do and hope we get to collaborate further on this OpenIDEO concept.  
Best, Phyllis

Thanks for what you do, Morgan.  I'm not sure we appreciate how hard people work in healthcare, and how exhausting it can be.  I'm hoping we find a way to bring palliative care to many more sick people.
