Patients can make you a better resident
Seventeen years ago, the Institute of Medicine — now the National Academy of Medicine— identified patient-centeredness as one of six healthcare quality goals. Since then, the importance of a patient's experience has been embedded into the rubric of quality measurements for healthcare facilities. It naturally follows that medical education is tasked with teaching trainees the skills to provide patient-centered care, with an emphasis on communication and interpersonal sensitivity.
