Making decisions in the setting of an illness can be challenging, even overwhelming for a number of reasons. My approach as a care provider is to champion the patient’s cause; to encourage, to clarify, to steer with a combination of best-practice knowledge and collaborative decision making. The best outcomes occur when the patient, family and physicians work together.
