Praxis 85(14): 451-453

Truth is not conceived by the doctor alone who then is expected to communicate it to an uninformed patient. Diagnostic and prognostic findings in each individual case are a result of an interactive process, where the patient as well as the doctor are participating. Adequate information of patients is inevitable, but in practice not yet quite satisfactory. Some proposals for improvement are made.
