Resumen

HERRERA, Andrea; RIOS, Matías; MANRIQUEZ, José Manuel  y  ROJAS, Gonzalo. Breaking bad news in clinical practice. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.10, pp.1306-1315. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872014001000011.

Breaking bad news is a complex task that requires multiple communication skills from health professionals. Clinical practice demands to communicate all type of bad news, from a diagnosis of cancer to adverse effects of a treatment. On the other hand, since the beginning of the health reform in 2003, the need to improve the quality of services was proposed, among which the concern about the rights and duties of patients stands out. Therefore, the health care provider-patient relationship becomes again the subject of discussion and study, and a topic of great importance for clinical work. We revise the consequences of breaking bad news for the patient and for the health care provider, as well as the current protocols available for this purpose. The importance of developing communication skills both for future health professionals as for those who currently work in the area is emphasized.
