Hi Michael
I think the unfinished business falls into the emotional intelligence basket – some will never be ready. Often what they do is prolong the suffering of the one they love. We have often asked, how much longer does (name) need to suffer? Of course that comes after a long, nuanced conversation.
Having said that, in our shop it was always the senior docs who had those conversations, never the residents.

Cheers

Carl
