This book fully describes and explains the patient-centered model of medicine, providing the foundation to the Patient-Centered Care series. In the years since the first edition was published, the clinical method has evolved, and this new edition brings the reader fully up to date. The book comprehensively covers the six interactive components of the method and learning and teaching the method. It examines and evaluates qualitative and quantitative research on the patient-centered clinical method, including reviews and recent studies.

Changes in the traditional relationship between doctor and patient have emphasized the need for an authoritative, practical and current guide to a more appropriate, and this stimulating work will aid both students and clinicians in community and hospital practice.
