Discussion

After watching the film with Agnes, what are your thoughts about communication and honesty in palliative care?

You may wish to consider the following questions:

  • Are you surprised that, in some countries, being open and honest with patients regarding diagnosis and prognosis is still problematic?
  • How does this compare with your own country?
  • Should we always be completely open and honest with patients and their family carers?
