It’s natural to avoid thinking—never mind talking—about dying. As a result, most people do not make their wishes clear to their loved ones or their health care providers.

But fewer than half of severely or terminally ill patients have advance directives in their medical records, according to  research sponsored by my agency, the ... market research, surveys and trends

As usual, the area was crowded with tourists, but we arrived early enough this time to get a good view.

They are not part of the changing of the guard ceremony (which is all about changing the sentries outside Buckingham ... market research, surveys and trends

If Medicare for all is the solution to our healthcare problem; why ...

It appears to me that fed is contributing to the rising cost of health insurance and helping to manufacture the discontent with our current system. Below is an article that discusses proposed Medicare cuts to hospitals and may be helpful to the discussion:
