Palliative Care Consults
This chapter discusses the concept of the so-called palliative care consults. Most consults are not straightforward requests for advice regarding a particular symptom but rather very difficult processes of communication and relationship building in emotionally charged situations. The chapter explains how the GOOD structure may be modified to accommodate the consult process. The GOOD acronym stands for identifying goals and option, giving one's opinion, and then documenting the consult.
