Patient-care decision-making

For example, if you have to make a decision for yourself or someone else, regarding treatment and care options, would you know how to go about the process? How would you be sure that your decision for someone reflects their values and preferences?

Patient life values and preferences

For example, what might you want your family and medical team to know about your goals of care? What is important to you, in how you live your life? What aspects of life and health are your key priorities?

Conflicts within families and between families, patients and clinicians

For example, suppose you and your other family members disagree about a decision that must be made for someone else. Or, suppose you and your doctor disagree about appropriate treatment and care for you. Are you able to resolve those conflicts?

Communication challenges

For example, do you ever leave a conversation with your doctor, or members of your medical care team, with unanswered questions or unvoiced concerns? How can you better plan and manage important medical communications?

Our counselors can provide you with experienced guidance to help you and your family negotiate these concerns. We can assist you in clarifying your needs, preferences and values to ensure that the healthcare you receive supports your choices.
