  • Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

    According to Maslow, there are general types of needs (physiological, safety, love, and esteem) that must be satisfied before a person can act unselfishly. He called these needs "deficiency needs." As long as we are motivated to satisfy these cravings, we are moving towards growth, toward self-actualization. Satisfying needs is healthy, blocking gratification makes us sick or evil.

  • Collusion in doctor-patient communication about imminent death

    Almost all patients with cancer want to know their diagnosis and most patients also want to be informed about the chance that they will be cured. This does not imply that these patients want to hear the really bad news about their condition. Many patients, when they fear that their prognosis is rather poor, do not ask for precise information and do not hear it if it is provided by the doctor. Our study started from the observation that, after their first course of chemotherapy virtually all patients with small cell lung cancer in a university hospital programme showed a "false optimism" about their recovery, in the sense that the patients' interpretations of their prognosis were considerably more optimistic than those of their doctors.
