    How to work with families when they disagree with medical advice - Prof Lynn Gillam, Ms Sarah Jones and Dr Giuliana Antolovich - 2019 Reddihough Symposium 21 Aug 2019, 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

    Venue: Ella Latham Auditorium

    Synopsis

    One of the greatest changes in care of children with rare conditions and complex needs over the last 20 years has been in the role of parents in making medical decisions for their child or adolescent. Parents now have access to vast sources of ideas and information of varying quality.  Many parents want and expect to take the lead in their child’s health care.  This can be unsettling for clinicians, and can lead to situations where parents and clinicians disagree over medical management. The purpose of this Grand Round is to reflect on the impact and implications on health professionals when they find themselves in these disagreements. We will begin with a case example of a younger child presented by a frustrated clinician.  Two different forms of support for professionals working in this complex space will then be described: clinical supervision and clinical ethics.


    Tomorrow’s Grand Round is part of the 2nd Annual Reddihough Symposium. This year the theme is New Frontiers in Neurodisability, and it will follow Grand Rounds in the Ella Latham Lecture Theatre until 5pm.
