Research

Studying Doctor-Patient Relationships, Communication and Medical Professionalism

Our primary research and teaching interests are focused on:

  • Professionalism and humanism in medical schools. Understanding what students experience, how they interpret it and what we should do to help their development as humanistic professionals.
  • Developing communication skills for handling and assessing multi-participant conversations (triadic communication) physician-patient-companion. Understanding how we should and could involve family members.
  • Teaching medical students and professionals how to break bad news, including assessing how their personal difficulties and biases affect their communication.
  • Enhancing medical students self-awareness (e.g., by using reflective diaries and narratives in medical education).
  • Defining and applying Shared Decision Making in healthcare.
