Topic: Finding Evidence and Elegance in the Diverse Forms of Integrative Healthcare
A discussion of the nature of patient care as a rational, interpretive, science-using practice informed by various forms of evidence and most elegant when it centers on the power of an effective doctor-patient relationship. We explore how all healthcare providers need to be aware of the forces that bias their understanding and knowledge. Objectives: At the end of the lecture, participants should be able to describe:
- The difference between eminence-based and evidence-based healthcare
