Should Physicians Ever Challenge Patients’ Values?

In the patient/clinician conversation the clinician must inevitably adopt some conception of autonomy.  In fact, more than one conception will often be at play.  Dr. Brudney will distinguish several different conceptions and explain how far each is permissible in the patient/clinician conversation.
