As I read "The burden of responsibility should not be placed on a few", I thought "but the honor of a successful treatment appears to be mainly enjoyed by the physician." Seen in this light, the situation is much more complicated.

The question of this thread is whether "the honor of successful treatment" is the opposite of "the burden of responsibility."

************************************
The care of a psychiatric patient does not occur in isolation within a physician’s office. There are multiple systems involved that determine the direction of care. The burden of responsibility should not be placed on a few. This loss has to be owned by everyone, who come together to support one another. Only then can the cloud of shame and guilt be lifted.

    Both notions are too abstract to have exact opposites, in my opinion, but the word 'responsibility' should apply to both possible results of any treatment - success and/or failure.

    "The burden of responsibility is a negative in the medical profession and "the honor of a successful treatment" is a positive.

    Where are you getting “the honor of successful treatment” from? It doesn’t even figure in that article.
