Death has been a taboo topic in China for centuries, making it difficult to prepare terminally ill patients and their families. One doctor is breaking this tradition by helping patients and families face the imminence of death through the new option of palliative care facilities, comforting patients in their final days of illness. In this episode, we examine the challenges undertaken by a man who opposes cultural norms with his belief that to appreciate the true value of life, one must not avert their eyes from the reality of death.
