Studies Show Physician Empathy Increases Patient Satisfaction and Outcomes

Studies Show Physician Empathy Increases Patient Satisfaction and Outcomes | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Is empathy a core component of "evidence-based medicine?"  One prominent researcher and author in the area of empathy in patient care argues that the answer is unequivocally "yes" and says that it can and should be evaluated, taught and sustained, as studies show a high correlation between patient satisfaction and outcomes with empathy scores.

Why Your Brain Loves Good Storytelling

Why Your Brain Loves Good Storytelling | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Many business people have already discovered the power of storytelling in a practical sense – they have observed how compelling a well-constructed narrative can be. But recent scientific work is putting a much finer point on just how stories change our attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.


As social creatures, we depend on others for our survival and happiness. A decade ago, my lab discovered that a neurochemical called oxytocin is a key “it’s safe to approach others” signal in the brain. Oxytocin is produced when we are trusted or shown a kindness, and it motivates cooperation with others. It does this by enhancing the sense of empathy, our ability to experience others’ emotions.

 

Empathy is important for social creatures because it allows us to understand how others are likely to react to a situation, including those with whom we work.
