My approach to clinical care is based on assessing for potential for improvement and cure.  Advanced diagnostics and treatments offer the potential for better outcomes, beyond what our expectations would be otherwise. Careful consideration of the family and patient’s wishes to consider such an approach with responsible integration into care can offer reasonable hope.
