You are sincere, honest and truthful? But how can these good and gold qualities bring their generous harvest in our tricky and intricate life? Should truth be such bitter and shocking? Is it always so?
These questions are relevant to medical ethics and medical care. The physician should be well trained how to convey relief and positive thinking to the patients through telling the truth in the proper manner. It is a fact that truth is rescuer and protector. The question is how to express truth that help loosen the situation and not the reverse. For example, one need not to tell the patient that there are no enough facilities (which can be almost always true) while only direct reassurance that the case need only available service is all that is needed.
There should be a way to tell the truth without making it typically bitter but rather to bring such ‘badly needed’ truth cheers.
