/ Jacq and Dene / Health / Robot doctors can deliver bad news – but should they?


Jacq and Dene on JOY 94.9Would you want to be told devastating medical news by a robot doctor?

A telepresence robot recently delivered a terminal diagnosis to a family in California. And they could not be more disappointed with the medical practitioners involved.

Is this the future of medicine? Or is it a new out for doctors who don’t have the guts to deliver bad news to patients in person?

Alex from The Big Smoke chats with Jacq and Dene about the use of technology and artificial intelligence in healthcare.
