  1. Communication between patients and physicians about terminal care : a survey in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    We assessed patient-physician communication about terminal care in Japan by examining the accuracy of physicians'estimation of their patients' preferences as regards (1) information about diagnosis and prognosis, (2) the place of death and (3) the therapeutic strategy at terminal stage (life prolongation vs pain control).

    We conducted a questionnaire survey on inpatients (n=201) in three hospitals; two in rural areas (Nagano and Okinawa) and one in an urban area (Tokyo).

    Simultaneously we asked physicians (n=40) in charge of the patients to estimate their attitudes.

    The accuracy of physicians' estimation was assessed by correct estimation rate (CER) and kappa coefficient.
