Denise Silber's insight:

The American Board of Internal Medicine commissioned a study which did not find correlation between patient surveys and medical records on the one hand and doctor review sites on the other. The study was limited to 25 patients per practice and diabetes and HBP.

 

Given the subject of the study, did ABIM bring in patients in a serious advisory role? We don't know. Did ABIM preserve a neutral perspective in creating the study? After all, we mostly hear doctors saying that online reviews are worth nothing...

Doctor, Shut Up and Listen: Doctors are evaluated for technical skills, but not for having empathy.

Doctor, Shut Up and Listen: Doctors are evaluated for technical skills, but not for having empathy. | Doctors 2.0 & You | Scoop.it

A doctor’s ability to explain, listen and empathize has a profound impact on a patient’s care.

 

Yet, as one survey found, two out of every three patients are discharged from the hospital without even knowing their diagnosis. Another study discovered that in over 60 percent of cases, patients misunderstood directions after a visit to their doctor’s office. And on average, physicians wait just 18 seconds before interrupting patients’ narratives of their symptoms. Evidently, we have a long way to go.

 

Three years ago, my colleagues and I started a program in Harrisburg designed to improve doctors’ communication with their patients. This large urban hospital system serves a city with a population of about 50,000, together with the surrounding metropolitan area of more than 550,000 people.

An unending task to introduce empathy into the current health system. We must ask ourself how to change the factors in the system that block empathy from happening naturally... Many things indeed.

Pål Dobrin's curator insight, January 9, 5:36 AM

Läkare utvärderas efter deras tekniska färdigheter, men inte efter deras empatiska förmågor. Det kanske är otillräckligt med tanke på den tydliga kopplingen mellan läkarens empatiska förmåga och patienters tillfrisknande?  Läkare som förklarar diagnoser, lyssnar uppmärksamt och känner in är värda att uppskattas lite extra!
