Study by Michael Yedidia and CHPSR Looks at Doctor-Patient Relationships

This research by Michael Yedidia, Wagner Research Professor of Public and Health Administration, investigates new ways of structuring doctor-patient relationships to promote patient-centered care by studying five innovative practices: 1) cancer self-help and advocacy because it offers new sources of support and shared authority among peers, 2) palliative care because it demands maintenance of trust while shifting the overall goal of care, 3) complementary medicine because it embraces approaches that rely upon disparate knowledge bases, 4) group visits for chronic illness care in managed care organizations because they draw upon shared experience and learning among peers, and 5) new communications curricula in medical education because they can prepare physicians to assume new roles with patients.
