Building better dialogue between families and medical professionals.
Some of the most stressful times of people’s lives are spent dealing with their own and their loved ones’ medical emergencies or episodes of ill health. Whether receiving bad news, spending prolonged periods in hospital, or having to make critical choices about care or withdrawal of care, people’s fear and upset can make it extremely difficult for them to know that they are making the right decisions about what is best for themselves or for a family member.
There is also a clear risk at such difficult times that families and health professionals can come into conflict over crucial care decisions, and prolonged disputes can quickly develop. This is to the detriment of everyone involved, including, most notably, the individual receiving care.
Medical mediation is becoming increasingly recognised as a quick and highly-effective way to build dialogue between people, to head off disputes, to restore trust, and to provide the conditions for people to make some of the most difficult decisions they may ever need to make.
