Multiple voices are present here: the patient, the medical professional, the family-caregiver, and the interdisciplinary health care team. The authors supplement their observations and analyses with ethnographic data gathered from clinical consultations with patients; palliative care team meetings; and interviews with team members as well as with physician fellows in a palliative care fellowship program."--Jacket."@en ;
