3 INFORMATION IS NOT ENOUGH: THE PLACE OF STATISTICS IN THE DOCTOR–PATIENT RELATIONSHIP Kathryn Key Montgomery and Ellen Key Harris-Braun INTRODUCTION The hero of Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilych is a man of “incorruptible honesty,” who prides himself on his work as an examining magistrate. “He never abused his power…,” but the consciousness of it and of the possibility of softening its effect supplied the chief interest and attraction of his office.... 1 This professional disinterest, a bureaucratic ideal after the 1861 Russian judicial reform, was a great improvement on the favoritism and bribery that preceded it, and Ivan Ilych polishes detachment to an art, devoting his career to its perfection.

Biomedical science, millennial technology, and the advances of evidence-based medicine make this possible for many diagnoses to an extent (and for a length of time) unimaginable a short while ago. But to provide the reassurance patients need, physicians must be willing to go beyond the statistics. CONCLUSION Good physicians have always sensed what patients need. If they cannot assure them of a cure for their disease, then they can speak about the manageability of the disease or, when death is in prospect, 3 The Place of Statistics in the Doctor–Patient Relationship 41 offer reassurance about the relief of pain and their commitment not to abandon the patient.

A third barrier, however, is more personal and well within an individual physician’s power to remove. It is the failure to acknowledge the patient’s life-or-death question and the temptation 3 The Place of Statistics in the Doctor–Patient Relationship 39 to avoid it altogether. Knowing that the science of medicine cannot provide anything like the certain answers the patient seeks, some physicians may become cynical about that desire and ignore it, thereby missing an opportunity to offer a different but ultimately more valuable kind of reassurance.
