(p.167) 11 Ethical Issues In Multidisciplinary Teamwork Within Palliative Care
Teamwork in Palliative Care
Bobbie Farsides
Oxford University Press

This chapter examines ethical issues in the multidisciplinary teamwork setting in palliative care. It contends that one of the great advantages of the multidisciplinary team is that each subgroup within it acts as a corrective to the view that any one group of professionals can do everything that is needed for a patient and their family. This corrective mechanism can also work at a moral level where no one perspective is allowed to prevail to the extent that moral debate and self-examination are replaced by complacency and lack of self-criticism or awareness.

Keywords:   ethical issues, palliative care, multidisciplinary teamwork, subgroup, corrective mechanism, self-criticism
