Here are a few key quotes:
“Researchers concluded by noting that the incorporation of empathy into communication has been linked to improved patient satisfaction and health outcomes, as well as a reduction in physician burnout.”
“Most importantly, listening to patients and their families allows physicians to avoid missing opportunities to deepen the discussion.”
“The study also found that instances where physicians responded with open empathy and with time to allow family members to respond resulted in more important information being shared, from family to physician.”
