Résumé

Les progrès médicaux entraînent des prises de décision complexes en oncologie. Le doute inhérent à ces décisions peut provoquer des réactions négatives chez les patients et chez les médecins. Une étude internationale a récemment montré les difficultés des médecins à appliquer des compétences en communication susceptibles de réduire ces réactions négatives. Les médecins travaillant en oncologie pourraient bénéficier de programmes de formation à la communication spécifiques aux contextes de haute incertitude pour améliorer la qualité de leurs prises de décision thérapeutique.

When the doubt arises in the therapeutic decision-making: the need to rethink the training of oncologists

Abstract

Medical advances lead to complex decision-making in oncology. The doubt associated with these decisions can lead to negative reactions among patients and physicians. An international study recently showed physicians’ difficulties to apply communication skills that could reduce these negative reactions. Physicians working in oncology may benefit from specific communication skill training programs focusing on high-uncertainty contexts to improve the quality of their therapeutic decisions.
