Rena: "If at any time I want to quit treatment, that would be OK." I.e., if you want to die, just go ahead. Rena: "tell me what you know." "tell me what you know." She is not able, or not willing, to discuss why which drugs are chosen. Does not pay attention to responses given or do read the patient's file ahead of time. Learned more from the assistants than from her.
