To the Editor: In his article,1 Dr
Weissman discusses how to address end-of-life issues, an important and changing
subject. The article included an interview with the medical oncologist who
has cared for a cancer patient over the past 2 years. During these years,
the physician was able to establish a trusting relationship with the patient
and probably with her family.
