The 2019 Eber lecture featuring Rabbi Jason Weiner, Chaplain at Cedars Sinai, on the topic
“Truth Telling: Revealing Painful Medical Truths to Family Members”
How much information should be shared with patients and how should they be told? Should family members ever be told more than the patient? What if the patient wants to know everything but others think they cant handle it? We will explore classical Jewish sources, as well as a range of approaches within contemporary medical ethics, to flesh out this very complex and common dilemma.
