Excellent summary, Edwin! The SICG seems to be having a very positive effect on the communication skills of those physicians who frequently deal with serious illness or death (such as palliative care or oncology). I was thinking, and would be curious on others opinions on this, should the SICG be taught to all healthcare professionals? Or at least the principles and strategies of phraseology, using silence, listening etc. that Drs. Simon and Dunne mentioned be taught? Obviously not all healthcare workers deal with serious or life-threatening illness, but I think at least the basic principles mentioned during these rounds could apply to all healthcare professional as just a way to simply improve their communication skills with patients!
