Join Dr. Saleh Aldasouqi as he brings to light empathy in the exam room. This webinar will discuss the causes of the eroding trust that patients once held for their doctors, and the lack of empathy among doctors. As both a patient and a doctor, Dr. Saleh will share his personal reflections and discuss the impediments to empathy in the exam room. In this non-traditional approach, the webinar will provide tools and methods to enhance empathy among doctors through the utilization of stories and movies as we work toward a better doctor-patient relationship and communication.
