Use of Potentially Manipulative Communication Practices in Surrogate Decision-Making for Patients with COVID-19
Staff physicians and other allied health professionals need to be regularly updated on the guidelines and challenges related to ethics consultation, clinical ethics practice and the role of ethics in shared clinical decision-making. The series aims to increase knowledge of the learners in these topic areas, and to provide the skills and tools for their implementation in clinical practice in order to enhance the quality of patient care.
Staff physicians and other allied health professionals
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Evaluate how showing a patient's body to surrogates could potentially manipulate the goals of care decisions at the end of life.
Explore how their senses might affect the rational decision-making of surrogates.
Identify ethical ways of showing a patient's body to surrogates to inform decisions without unduly influencing or manipulating them.
