Communicating with Medical Patients
Moira A. Stewart, Debra Roter
SAGE Publications, Jun 1, 1989 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 286 pages
Designed to synthesize a growing international and interdisciplinary body of experience, this volume provides a mandate and a charge to medicine to fundamentally transform the traditional clinical method and the social relations it fosters between doctor and patient and between student and teacher. The contributors challenge the medical establishment to change their clinical method from that of a disease-centred to a patient-centred one. Four sections deal with issues related to the doctor's own transformation, the medical interview, teaching and learning, and validation.
