An Extravagant Gift From a Grateful Patient.


:media-1vid110.1542/5787668327001PEDS-VA_2017-2837Video AbstractGift giving is psychologically and culturally complex. In any context, a gift can have multiple meanings. In the context of the doctor-patient relationship, the giving of gifts and decisions about whether to accept gifts raise complex ethical issues. In this essay, a number of pediatric oncologists discuss the ethical considerations that should guide physicians as they decide how to respond to an extravagant gift from a family.
