Abstract or Summary
  • The objective of this paper is to present an alternative model that can be accepted into our current medical care system that outlines protocols for physicians treating terminally ill patients and that will ultimately increase the number of end of life conversations made between them and their patients. The work of two physicians and one organization involved in the direct care of terminally ill patients will be summarized and critically analyzed so as to present the current issues with end of life care with an emphasis on the lack of discussions being conducted between doctors and their patients. The works will also be used to express possible solutions to these issues and will be referred to during the presentation of the alternative model. The model will be conveyed in its entirety and the goals of its implementation will bring the paper to its conclusion. Key Words: alternative model, end-of-life conversations, medical care protocol, terminally ill, treatment plan
