6 steps to communicate lung cancer to a patient -- BinaryPeach comments on Kidneys
"For this example lest say the patient has lung cancer.
Generally the first step involves saying something like What is your current understanding of your condition or what have you been told so far this is to determine how much the patient knows. Because if the patient has been told the news by the radiology staff or another physician, you are just going to look stupid when you deliver the actual news (that the patient has cancer).
The second step is to say something like I'm sorry, but I have some bad news or I'm sorry, I truly wish I had better news for you this is what we call a warning shot. Basically it primes the patient's brain to accept the following sentence. These phrases help lessen the anticipation. Because, in a way, you have already told the patient the bad news without actually saying they have cancer.
The third step would be to actually say the news. Something like I'm sorry, but I have some bad news. The biopsy indicates you have invasive lung cancer some interesting things about this phrase is that it's short, simple, and pretty much universally understandable by anyone who isn't familiar with medicine. Things we aren't supposed to say would be like you have stage 4 small cell carcinoma instead of just you have cancer. Because a patient might misunderstand what you are saying.
The fourth step is to just be quiet. After you break the news to them the patient's brain will be flooded with emotion, adrenaline, and all kinds of thoughts. The rule of thumb is to be quiet for at least 10 seconds. It's important to let the patient process the news.
Interestingly, the hard part isn't even telling them they have cancer. It's answering any questions they might have and being supportive without being too emotional. The fifth step is to find out if they have questions and provide them with answers. Some hard questions a patient might have would be, Is this because of the smoking, is this my fault, did I do this to myself, am I the reason my children will grow up without a mother? or the patient might just break down. I imagine it would be incredibly difficult to keep composure if the patient says something like I just found out my wife is pregnant and there is no chance I will get to witness the birth of my first child.
The last step is to develop a plan for follow up care. Find out what the patient's goals are. Do they want chemo or just hospice care? Chemo would offer a slightly increased life span (the life expectancy might increase from 3 months to 5 months) but your life could be miserable during those two extra months. Some patients know the prognosis is terminal no matter what is done, and they choose not to have any chemo so their last few months on earth can be a happy and comfortable experience. So, depending on the patient's goals (extending their life vs maintaining their quality of life) you would help them accordingly."
