Delivering Bad News Via Robot: Is technology, protocol, or grief the real issue?
“Just because the use of the telemedicine robot is the new factor in this encounter, does not mean that the family’s dissatisfaction is due to the use of this technology. We have to examine whether the technology was used appropriately and more generally, whether the bad news was given well. It is easy to blame a machine for dehumanizing the patient experience but sometimes people or situations can do that on their own.”
