physicians' attitudes: deception

Physicians' attitudes toward using deception to resolve difficult ethical problems

To assess physicians' attitudes toward the use of deception in medicine, JAMA sent a questionnaire to 407 practicing physicians. "One third indicated they would offer incomplete or misleading information to a patient's family if a mistake led to a patient's death." JAMA Vol. 261 No. 20, May 26, 1989
