Description

Background: Family conferences in the pediatric intensive care unit (ICU) often include palliative care (PC) providers. We do not know how ICU communication differs when the PC team is present. Aim: To compare language used by PC team and ICU physicians during family conferences. Design: A retrospective cohort review of ICU family conferences with and without the PC team. Setting: Forty-four bed pediatric ICU in a tertiary medical center. Participants: Nine ICU physicians and 4 PC providers who participated in 18 audio-recorded family conferences.
