Care Consultation

At the request of the attending physician, the Wolfson team enters into a relationship of care with the hospitalized patient, family and other healthcare professionals. 

Our multi-disciplinary team explores the meaning of the illness and how it personally affects the patient and family. Each team member contributes to a deeper understanding of how we can best support patients and their families.

Consultation Topics

During consultation, patients can expect a wide range of topics to be discussed, including:

  • Understanding Their Illness, Present Medical Treatment, and Prognosis
  • Alternative Options For Care, With In-Depth Discussions of The Potential Risks and Benefits of Each Option
  • Cultural, Religious, or Traditions That May Affect Care
  • Exploring End-of-Life Care Decisions

In collaboration with the patient's primary physician, the Wolfson team helps implement a comprehensive care plan that honors the patient's expressed wishes.
