Patient Participation in Palliative Care

James Gilbert

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses and identifies some of the reasons why some doctors are not naturally patient focused. It analyses some of the assumptions that underlie the idea of a ‘voice for the voiceless’, followed by some reflections on advocacy. The chapter concludes with an examination of the ways in which one's values have an important role in the delivery of satisfactory palliative care.

Keywords:   patient-focused doctors, assumptions, advocacy, palliative care
