This chapter describes how bedside teaching can affect patients, learners, and teachers; introduces selected models of bedside teaching; and discusses how these models might be used in teaching palliative care. Palliative care is an ideal setting in which to teach and demonstrate whole patient care through bedside teaching. It is a useful mode of teaching for all aspects of palliative care, including symptom assessment and management, psychosocial and spiritual support, communication skills, ethical decision-making, and patient and carer involvement and education.
