Understandably, most of your letters are written by physicians, but I hope that you will print a letter from another profession. Both my husband and I were interested to read A. B. Bergman's article "Resident Stress" (Pediatrics 1988;82:260-263). I am a Registered Nurse working primarily with dying patients. Both my profession and my chosen field help me to relate to the arduous tasks and emotionally painful aspects of my husband's pediatric residency. I cannot help but recognize the need for ongoing mention, lectures, and support for those ethical and moral decisions that physician's must make.
