Abstract

Palliative care (PC) subspecialists and clinical ethics consultants often engage in parallel work, as both function primarily as interprofessional consultancy services called upon in complex clinical scenarios and challenging circumstances. Both practices utilize active listening, goals-based communication, conflict mediation or mitigation, and values explorations as care modalities. In this set of tips created by an interprofessional team of ethicists, intensivists, a surgeon, an attorney, and pediatric and adult PC nurses and physicians, we aim to describe some paradigmatic clinical challenges for which partnership may improve collaborative, comprehensive care.
