A couple examples, recounted in class today:
- Say “contrast” instead of “dye.” Avoids that whole “death” thing.
- If you’re prescribing a new drug, don’t say something to the effect of, “Start this, and we’ll see what happens.” What you mean is we’ll see how effective the drug is, or how well-tolerated it is, but patients might get the idea you’re experimenting on them.
