The first requirement of good surgical care is that both the surgery performed and the care that follows are consistent with the patient’s goals of care. The name for this concept is 'goal concordant care.' Such care should always begin with an in-depth conversation between the surgeon and the patient about the patient’s values and preferences." via Health Affairs
