Acquisition of a Touching Style.
Schifter, Catherine C.; Bogert, Meredith; Boston, Daniel
Journal of Dental Education, v63 n5 p400-06 May 1999
A study used focus groups to allow students, general-dentistry residents, and dental faculty to discuss issues related to learning to use touch in dental treatment. Analysis of group interactions indicated that learning to touch dental patients was often trial-and-error, and uncomfortable for students. A fine line exists between preventing students from asking for faculty help and faculty from offering assistance. (Author/MSE)
