This film is an adaptation of the closing Plenary Lecture of McGill University's 2012 International Congress on Palliative Care - delivered by Dr. Balfour Mount, the father of North American Palliative Care. Dr. Mount explores the challenges that define suffering and define our quality of life. He argues for a health care paradigm shift from the existing disease-oriented, science-based medical model to the more comprehensive perspective of WHOLE PERSON CARE. "Our effectiveness as healers". Dr Mount argues, " is determined by our openness, self-awareness and capacity for radical presence. It is how we are present to one another that counts. Curiosity, humility and silence trump theoretical expertise as we accompany one another on the all-important journey of discovery toward the inner peace that is our neuro-biological birthright."
