Aimed at physicians who need to resolve conflicts with their patients, over issues as simple as prescribing antibiotics for a cold or as complicated as end-of-life care, this book uses case studies and practical advice to illustrate a systemic approach to consultation that "breaks down barriers and builds stronger, more gratifying relationships. Blackall (pediatrics and humanities, Penn State U. College of Medicine), Simms (associate director, Philadelphia Child and Family Therapy Training Center) and Green (humanities and medicine, Penn State U. College of Medicine) reveal how the "physician-as-expert" model can create obstacles during health care. They offer specific tips on how to create a collaborative relationship in dealing with such conflicts that arise in such situations as prescribing medications and deciding upon end-of-life care.
