“Pain management and palliative care under the civil rights law”

A patient must be given information concerning pain management and palliative care when he discusses with a physician the diagnosis, planned course of treatment, alternatives, risks, or prognosis for his illness. If the patient is incapacitated, the information must be given to the patient’s health care surrogate, proxy, court-appointed guardian, or attorney.
