This book examines the concept of medical narcissism and how error disclosure to patients and families is often compromised by the health professional’s need to preserve his or her self-esteem at the cost of honouring the patient’s right to the unvarnished truth about what has happened. This ground-breaking book explores common psychological reactions of healthcare professionals to the commission of a serious harm-causing error and the variety of obstacles that can compromise ethically sound, truthful disclosure.
