Class, let's say someone finds out, during the course of a routine medical exam, that they have a serious illness which must be treated immediately. Perhaps this is totally unanticipated. How is this handled in a physicians office, or at the hospital? In other words, what sort of communication would you expect from a physician? Would they be the only ones to deliver that message, or could that come from someone else? And how should these messages be delivered?
