Death Anxiety, Disclosure Behaviors, and Attitudes of Oncologists toward Terminal Care.
Cochrane, Joyce B.; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v22 n1 p1-12 1990-91
Examined relationships among death anxiety, disclosure behaviors, and attitudes toward terminal care of 99 oncologists. Found death anxiety scores lower for oncologists than typically reported for physicians. Short-term repeated exposure to dying patients resulted in comfort with dying patients whereas long-term repeated exposure resulted in discomfort. Disclosure to patients' families was more frequently reported behavior than disclosure to patient. (Author/NB)
