Survey of Palliative Care Physicians
Little is known about how and why physicians make the predictions they do when they prognosticate for their palliative care patients. Studies suggest that palliative care physicians are generally inaccurate, and tend to be overly optimistic, in their predictions of lifespan. The goal of this research is to better understand how and why physicians make the predictions they do.
