What do patients and relatives see as key competencies for intensive care doctors

Doctors working in intensive care units have to deal with critical clinical problems that require high level technical skills and knowledge, and their patients are often unconscious or otherwise incapacitated. In this high-pressured environment it is often difficult to assess individual patients’ wishes, but research on their views, together with those of their families and friends, can help us to determine these preferences.
