T2P OY9 Should the be told the truth? By DAVID HENUIN (Third in a Series) Does tile person suffering Jrom a fatal illness want to be told? The question is especially tricky because the patient may have never discussed tr.ij im- portant matter with his family. When he becomes ill, it can be difficult to elicit an answer. U the person has expressed a desire to know then the physi- cian shoi'id be informed, for it may make it easier for both to! doctor: cope v.ith the situation when it vvas at asked him. able to overcome such objections only after he cope aiises. ____ In a study of dying and; was lo interview am: moiuiing behavior, British an- (C3t two groups of seri- thrcpologist Geoffrey G o r e r i ousiy m patienls. j noted that all IS patients in his Hg rcealls that "not only were j after assimilating what he can, the patient will proceed to fur- ther questions and discussions. In other cases the family may not want the patient to know about his condition. In such circumstances the physician must weigh both sides of the issue ami use his best judg- ment, although he mil probably go along with the iamily's wishes. NEW SPECIALTY Meanwhile, a Duke Universi- ty William Poe, juvvey who died ol cancer had been "kept in ignorance about their prognosis. lie reported a great depl of regret and bitterness concern- ing this the bereavad and noted that gcod marriage. elationsV.ips had often been re- duced to "unkindness and fals- ty" by such deception. On the other hand, in another British study, psychiatrist John Hinton learned that a large ma- jority of more than 100 dying there no untoward incidents, but an unanticipated felicitous by- product was the seemingly psy- choiherapeutic effect on some of the patients as a result of dis- cussing their attitudes toward death." Eventually, bis study pro- gressed and Feifel found that K2 per cent of his samp'e of 00 ter- minally ill patients wanted lo be told about their condition in order to facilitate carrying out personal lasks. Missionaries depart for MaUiwi Three Roman Catholic priests from Southern Alberta departed this week for mis- sionary work in Malawi, Central Africa. About 400 friends and former parishioners at- tended o mass and reception in St. Mary's Calhedral, Calgary, last weekend to bid the men farewell.

Then, frightening, for it appears that ths very truths from which the i patient is being protected are the same truths that be is being j forced to live with, and quite j alone. OBSTACLES In attempting to obtain pa-', tients for a study of dying be- havior, psychiatrist Herman Feifel ran into serious obsta- cles, not from the patients, but from his fellow physicians. "Isn't it cruel, sadistic and traumatic to discuss death with seriously ill anil terminally ill has suggested a new medical specialty, maranlology (from Hie Greek word morantos, meanging "w i t h e r e d" or Marantologisls would not re- sort to heroic measures to keep their patients alive. They would care for the old, the in- curable, and those who have "committed the sin of ing alive but not yielding to I our manipulations." The maraniologist would be trained (o see bis patients die without experiencing feelings of guilt or personal failure. The bust answer lo the dil- emma lies in more education for all physicians. Just as every doctor special- izes in health and life he must, in a special sort of way, also snccialize in death. NEXT: Children and Death.
