Book reveals widespread abuse of cancer patients' rights

SYNOPSIS:

Should all patients be informed when they've been diagnosed with cancer? If the answer is “yes,” Who should break the bad news to them? And How is such news best delivered? How much of the truth can a patient handle? 

Patients' inalienable right to know the truth about their condition ought to be guaranteed the world over. Yet this right is routinely violated. In Greece, for example, cancer patients are frequently kept in the dark about their diagnosis. In fact, this right is routinely disregarded all over the globe with appalling consequences. 

In “The Right To The Truth,” the author—a thoracic surgeon—presents Counterexamples inspired by events observed during 33 years of clinical experience, and he addresses each with well-crafted Arguments in favor of the patients' Right to know : 

► for Trust
► for Protection from predators who would exploit vulnerable patients
► for understanding that Sacrifices are sometimes required to achieve cure
► for acquiring well-founded Hope 
► for Overcoming fear of the unknown

About the Author

Author Name : I.C. Papachristos, MD

     I'm a thoracic surgeon and current Head of the Thoracic Surgery Department at the 424 Military Hospital in Greece. It's a position I've held since 1999.

My early years were spent in my hometown, Kalampaka, which lies under Meteora, a picturesque rocky complex with post–Byzantine monasteries built on top. I studied Medicine at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece. I've been practicing Medicine since 1988.

I began my specialist–training initially in Athens, Greece, then continued in the United Kingdom cities of London, Glasgow and Belfast. I'm a former Regent of the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons for Greece (2005– 2010). My areas of interest include lung cancer, bioethics, medical ethics, and medical documentation. Click on this link ( www.icp-med.gr/engl/scientific/ ) for more details about my scientific and medical work. I serve as a Colonel in the Hellenic Army Medical Corps.

My inspiration for writing emerged from career milestones and other events in diverse geographical locations and cities in the UK, Greece, the United States, France and elsewhere. My first three books were written and published in 2016, two in Greek and one in English: www.papachristos.eu

TEARS OF THE VALKYRIE

 

Mighty are dragons, flames they do breathe

Long are their talons, with teeth they do cleave

Wings like a storm, the wind they do blow

No fiercer an enemy do angels or men know

Healed in clear waters deep in the well

There Odin’s eye and golden sword fell

Greatest of Battles, with sword he doth fight

Thor without Mjolnir no longer hath flight

Deep in the dragon the flames they do seethe

Heimdall fought bravely, but no dragon is he

The eye now is blinded, strong arm is left lame

Now come the Valkyrie to mourn for the slain
