Strategies for Building Satisfying Patient Relationships
New England Healthcare Assembly
This book fills a huge void in the areas of medical education and the delivery of patient service. The clear advice about how to identify and respond to patient needs and preferences is essential reading for physicians and those who work with them. If the personal rewards of medicine are important to you, read this book.
