Workshop/Seminar: New Dimensions in the Patient-Physician Relationship
One of the most important aspects of medicine is the patient/physician relationship. We are witnessing a transformation from the old doctor-centered approach, to patient-centered medicine. While the new approach is almost certainly good for patients, it can introduce new challenges for doctors. The goal of this workshop/seminar is to make it easier for doctors to make this transition.
