A personal experience with Guillain-Barré syndrome: are the psychologic needs of patient and family being met?

Autor(es): Shearn M. A.; Shearn L.

Resumo: We present a dialogue that illustrates how difficult an episode of severe illness is for both the suffering patient and the confused family. The powerful emotions engendered can be successfully managed only when physicians and nurses are aware of and address this turbulence that the patient and family are experiencing.
