Summary

With the aging of the baby boom generation, health care reform and advances in medical technology, clinicians face increasingly complex and difficult situations involving care of patients with serious and life-limiting illnesses. These illnesses, including but not limited to metastatic cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, heart failure and multi-organ failure, present both biomedical and personal challenges to the clinicians who provide such care. Yet, in their clinical training, those who provide this care receive little education and support to develop the attentiveness, skills and personal resilience required to approach this work with compassion and presence, and to prevent burnout. These challenges are amplified by the increasing pace, complexity, regulatory requirements and financial challenges of medical practice.
