"Finding the right time and place to have conversations about things such as progression of disease can be challenging, and patients react in all sorts of ways. "Some people will want to have that conversation when they realise that they're unwell. Some people will strongly say, 'I've been in hospital before, there's no way you're sending me to [intensive care],'" says Smith. Some just don't want to know."

How do you tell someone that they’re seriously ill, or even dying? We explore how doctors learn and how they deal with the stress and trauma, for both their patients and themselves.

Written and read by Chrissie Giles, produced by Barry J Gibb
