Empathetic Medicine – Keynote
In today’s day and age, I am sure everyone has noticed a separation and even difficulty communicating efficiently with not only our patients but our peers, family and the public at large. How do we improve these relationships? How do we improve our patient outcomes by doing something that has nothing to do with medicine? We show some empathy. In this lecture we will discuss the importance of opening up, not only as professional provider, but as a human. By taking this vital/lost step, we can grow our relationships and better connect with those people who are in need of not just medicine, but someone who cares. Let’s bring humility, trust and genuine care to our daily patient treatment tools. Because just a little empathy, can go a long, long way.
