I appreciate this providers attention to each individual part of the family. I recognized how he brought forward the importance of the parents being at peace with the decisions but also the importance of the patient being at peace with the decisions. This can be such a hard topic for an adolescent to hear with the parents and for the parents to face with their adolescent son. It was good to hear the practitioner bring forward the options with the family and address the pros and cons of when to make this decision, rather than pushing them one way or another.
I agree starting the conversation with there are no right or wrong decisions certainly is an excellent way to lower the stress/pressure it appears the father is having regarding making a decision quickly/urgently.
I agree with the method of education that the provider delivered. In this situation I strongly agree that there is no right or wrong. I am glad we are able to provide them the option because I feel that this will have patients and there families at peace later on knowing that it was them who decided and not someone else deciding for them.
