What Patients Want: The Full Facts, Please
JAMA. 1982 Nov 12; 248(18): 2210-2211.
The President's Commission for the Study of Ethical Problems in Medicine and Biomedical and Behavioral Research has concluded, based on national surveys of physician and public attitudes and on studies of physician-patient decision making, that patients are more likely to consent to treatment if they are kept fully informed by their physicians. The Commission has recommended to Congress and the President that increased communication, public education, and governmental support for efforts to improve the "human side" of medicine should be given priority over legal approaches to resolving disagreements about treatment.
