Counseling: The patient-doctor relationship
Counseling is as important a part of practicing medicine as is the actual treatment, yet counseling is not properly recognized in the medical curriculum. Having the patient sign an informed consent does not suffice; the physician must know how to talk to a patient (and family), what words to use, how to listen, make sure his metacommunication does not deviate from his verbal message; and provide enough interpretable information for the patient so that he can decide on the type of treatment. This talk will go through the most important elements of counseling.
