Circular questions: a family interviewing strategy.


Assessment strategies for working with the family of the critically ill typically focus on collecting data from family members in order to determine if the family requires further support or intervention. This article describes using the technique of circular questioning to obtain information from and provide the family with new information. Circular questions are interventions as well as assessment strategies. The authors provide critical care examples of the use of circular questions with families of the critically ill.
