    More than 500,000 Americans die from cancer every year, and many of those people spend their final hours in the emergency department.

Dr. Arthur Derse, director of medical and legal affairs and associate director of the Medical College of Wisconsin's Center for the Study of Bioethics and professor of bioethics and emergency medicine, joins host Dr. Shira Johnson to look at how doctors can help terminally ill patients and their loved ones when it comes to living wills, life support and pain management.
