Dr. Thanh Neville is talking with us about the benefits of granting end of life wishes through the 3 Wishes Program at UCLA Health. Dr. Neville joined the faculty in the UCLA Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care in 2012 and is both a clinician and a researcher. In 2017, she co-founded the 3 Wishes Program and is currently its Medical Director. According to the UCLA Health website, clinical staff works with the patient and family, finding favorite memories or special qualities about the patient to celebrate the unique life of the patient. These memories and qualities are turned into special legacy keepsakes or events. While creating these special memories for families and patients, the 3 Wishes Program team at UCLA health finds comfort and meaning for themselves. The staff is reminded why they work with seriously ill patients and feel their work is elevated by granting these end of life wishes.
