Watch Your (Bedside) Manners

This week The Layman’s Doctor speaks with Dr. Ryan Brooks, a specialist in Internal Medicine, about bedside manner. In this episode they discuss the importance of a medical history and how to navigate different situations with patients and relatives.

Soft skills are a critical part of practicing medicine, however are not taught in its entirety in the curriculum, this leaves learning these skills up to apprenticeship, role models and trial and error.

The Layman’s Doctor is determined to have more and more health care workers speak about soft skills and eventually have modules established in all medical sciences curriculums.

Until then, introspect and learn from others. Nothing is wrong with making mistakes, only if you make an effort to learn from them and improve- The Layman’s Doctor’s own personal philosophy.
