Today the committee invites consults on cases such as:
- "A patient is approaching end of life, and the family does not seem to understand this. Usual measures of trying to assist the family have failed."
- "A patient has had a procedure, and does not seem to be recovering. As a clinician, you believe that all signs point to end of life. Others on the team do not agree with you/others. Usual measures of team discussion are not working."
