Provision of a “good death” is one of the major goals of the Educating Physicians on End-of-Life Care (EPEC) curriculum and is perceived as more and more important by the public and the medical community. Although many physicians are comfortable dealing with depression and anxiety in a routine ambulatory setting, the context of a terminal illness requires different approaches to assessment and management of these disorders, as shown in the following summary of a patient encounter.
