Teaching Doctor-Patient Interviewing in Physical Diagnosis.
Smith, David H.; And Others
The course content of a laboratory session on patient interviewing taught to medical students taking a course on physical diagnosis is discussed in this paper. The first part of the paper describes the basic course content covered in the lectures: the bio-psycho-social model, the communication process, and the skills necessary for effective doctor-patient communication. The second part of the paper deals with the interview as a task-oriented process and provides an outline of communication activities for the patient interview. The remaining part of the paper offers an instructor's outline, student informational protocols, and patient programs (patients' medial problems, personal lives, social histories, and so forth) for a laboratory session designed to help physicians influence the behavior of patients after they leave the office.
