Toward a Person-Centered Medicine: Religious Studies in the Medical Curriculum.
Barnard, David; And Others
Academic Medicine, v70 n9 p806-13 Sep 1995
It is proposed that integration of religious studies into existing courses in the medical curriculum can help foster medical students' respect for patient individuality within a cultural context, heighten self-awareness of beliefs and values as professional resources, address value-laden aspects of patient encounters, and strengthen commitment to person-centered medicine. Classroom strategies and techniques are discussed. (MSE)
