Abstract

The skills of the consultation-liaison psychiatrist are enormously valuable in the emerging field of clinical ethics consultation. Expertise in evaluating decision-making capacity is crucial, as is the larger issue of addressing the role that emotional factors play in making life or death decisions. Three cases are reviewed that illustrate the way in which the psychiatric perspective enhances the process of clinical ethics consultation.
