Atul Gawande’s 5 Questions to Ask at Life’s End – Next Avenue

"We need to know:   1. What is your understanding of where you are and of your illness? 2. Your fears or worries for the future 3. Your goals and priorities 4. What outcomes are unacceptable to you? What are you willing to sacrifice and not? And later, 5. What would a good day look like?   Asking these allows everybody to understand what the goal really is — what are you really fighting for? It’s for a life that contains certain things."
