abstract
The health care system, along with other service industries, has recently sought to serve patients through models of person-centered care. Bolstered by ideals of respect for autonomy and individual values, medical professionals seek to provide medical care that supports the well-being of patients beyond physiology alone. However, in the acute hospital setting there exist numerous barriers that make this goal difficult. Physicians and staff are faced with ethical dilemmas daily while encountering patients faced with high stress situations, critical decision-making, and planning for the future in the context of serious illness. Providers of medical care are often unable to help resolve these situations due to their competing obligations.
