Description
In the present study, we investigated the consensus in the truth telling of cancer and teaching about medication by pharmacists by using a questionnaire among 24 physicians in the Third Department of Internal Medicine, the University of Tokushima School of Medicine. At the same time, the data was compared to the previous investigation in 1995.
The Physicians' opinion in the truth telling of cancer have changed in these seceral years, that is summarized as positive in truth telling. In 1995, 40% of the physicians were against to tell the truth with pharmacists, but in the present study, most physicians wanted to tell the truth with pharmacists. As for the teaching about medication by pharmacists, most physicians supported pharmacists to teach about medication, even to the patients who do not know the truth about their own cancer.
These results suggest that it is necessary for the pharmacists to positively relate to the cacer patients through the truth telling and the teaching about medication.
