By examining and evaluating both qualitative and quantitative research, including reviews and recent studies, the book offers an invaluable compendium of relevant education literature and methods.
Illustrating patient-centered concepts through case studies, Patient-Centered Medicine provides clear, inspirational messages about the instrumental role of patient-centered clinical care for both students and clinicians in all healthcare environments.
