Abstract

Discussions about end of life care can be difficult for patients and practitioners. Numerous studies have demonstrated that dying patients often receive care that does not address their suffering adequately, partly due to inadequate physician-patient communication. An educational module was developed for graduate medical residents about the care of dying patients to improve their communication skills, particularly in the area of end of life discussions with patients. The module contains, didactic material as well as exercises to provide the teacher and learners with a framework to explore personal and patient values, and how those values relate to medical decision making. Portions of the module have also been utilized at seminars for social workers and nurses, f Article copies available for a fee from The Haworth Document Delivery Service: 1-800-342-9678.
