The informing interview. Enabling parents to 'hear' and cope with bad news.

Abstract

The diagnosis of a chronic or fatal condition in a child presents a difficult situation for the physician who must inform the parents. It is a situation that can be handled poorly and thus be detrimental to parents "hearing" and coping with this bad news. The successful outcome of an informing interview depends on the characteristics of the informer and circumstances of the interview.
