Maybe the created of this debate wanted to address certain situations when the patient was not informed about how big the disease or problem was.
Like in our case when my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer than the doctor informed about it first to my father because my grandfather could have become very sad or emotional about the situation and would also had lowered down his morale as his cancer was at last stage so rather the doctor wanted us to handle the delicacy of situation and wanted a right time to acknowledge the situation to my grandfather.
