Argument in favor of limited disclosure due to impractical communication.
- *The information physicians have is too
- technical, complex and difficult for a lay person to understand.
*There is no obligation to do something that can’t be done (‘ought’ implies ‘can’).
*Physicians are not obligated to communicate information that would not be understood by patients, or that would be misunderstood.
*Physicians are not obligated to disclose complete information to patients.
