Telling your patient the truth

  • Medju Medju


Professional secrecy is an ancient tradition of the medical profession, dating back 24 centuries to the time of the Hippocratic Oath. It may be in the patient's own interests to disclose his condition. Those in practice will also have found that it is constantly necessary to deliberately disclose the patient's condition to some other person, in order that he may be properly treated.
