Hospice and Palliative Medicine SmartBrief | Sep 21, 2016

Highland Hospital in Oakland, Calif., allowed cameras to film end-of-life patients in its ICU for the 24-minute film "Extremis," which was released on Netflix and won an award at the Tribeca Film Festival. Dr. Jessica Nutik Zitter, who was featured in the film, said administrators were wary and very protective, and there was a lot of back-and-forth about clear boundaries and what was appropriate to film.
