Episode 408: Liar, liar, pants on fire – or at least a little bit of smoke

In episode 408, Mike and James talk about a couple of recent survey publications. One, which examined patient satisfaction around patient requests and denials of those requests. The other examined how often and why patients are not always honest about disclosing medically relevant information. At the end we decide there is a little liar in all of us and we just need to accept it.
