  • Overview

    Dr. Alexia Torke, assistant professor of medicine at Indiana University, discusses how standard bioethical approaches with surrogates do not often match what actually happens at the bedside. Physicians use their clinical judgement and what they feel is right for the incompetent patient in determining a course of action. Much can be done to establish this important relationship with surrogates, beginning with creating trust and assessing their own grief and emotional stress. Hosted by Dr. Maurice Pickard.
