DESCRIPTION:

Course Description: This course will study the diverse cultural, ethical, and psychosocial issues that affect the evolving clinician- patient relationship. We will examine the powerful influence of the patient's mind and his or her social context on the development and management of disease. Effective clinician-patient interactions are essential to delivering quality care. We will examine culture, family, stress, disabilities, and diversity and how these factors influence patient care. We will discuss strategies for delivering bad news, discuss death, dying, and bereavement, and examine the roles of both palliative care and hospice care in our health system. To this end, we will utilize role-playing, discussion boards, and small group interactions.
