The New Medical Conversation by Dennis J. Mazur
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mazur explores the ways physicians can effectively discuss relevant information with their patients, using appropriate 'information messages,' being aware of the pitfalls of framing manipulations, and seeking to enhance both global and specific areas of understanding. In so doing, Dr. Mazur is showing how we can meet the requirements of modern consumerist health care and yet also maintain the essential and supportive qualities of physicians conversing with their patients. - Adrian Edwards, University of Wales College of Medicine, Llanedeyrn Health Center Visit our website for sample chapters!
