Description

‘It was always very difficult for me to tell someone they were dying.  No course or lecture about how to approach it or what words to use seemed to help.  I eventually worked out that the actual words I used did not seem to matter . . .’

David Macintosh is a former surgeon and an ethicist who writes with candour, insight and eloquence about empathy, practical wisdom, rationality and human frailty, factors that bear profoundly upon our understanding of trust.  He sees trust as a burden a doctor must accept for all patients.  It imposes an obligation that goes to the core of a doctor’s character.
