The two most important aspects of the patient-physician relationship are the patient’s goals of care and shared decision-making. It is important to recognize that goals of care are very individualized, can vary for the same patient during different stages of their life and also vary during different stages of treatment. In the same context, sharing the opportunity for the patient to make their informed decision is another cornerstone of this relationship.
