The patient should not be left out in a discussion which concerns no one more than him. Indeed, “the truth of the matter” will determine his life, his future welfare or happiness; the problem is how much is he to know of what the days to come might bring to him. He is not only the object but the true partner of this discussion; he is the one who raises the question silently or openly; he is the one whose life or death will seal the truth, whether he was told so or not.
