The most common questions physicians ask me is how to give bad news to patients, as well as how to discuss end-oflife care. I have developed my own personal approach over the years, adapted from the SPIKES method of Robert Buckman, MD. May it offer useful reminders in the process of what we as physicians do intuitively, each day.
