Here is a poster from my honours research on prognosis communication. I think very key in ED for some instances; again, it comes to the heart of the matter – what are we trying to achieve here, and where does everyone think we are going?

Qualitative research was conducted on how prognosis is communicated between clinicians in an acute care setting.
Data was analysed from interviews with health care professionals (doctors, nurses, allied health) and patient notes of three consenting patients who had a haematological malignancy. Three themes emerged from the data, one of which was that clinicians were reticent to discuss prognosis
with each other, or ‘had difficulty getting it out and keeping it regular’.
The three (3) constraining factors were:
1. need to know basis
2. lack of shared values
3. insufficient time/prioritisation
