Giving language to empathy: lessons from palliative care

“The value of empathy in medicine is seldom debated. Just as the art of medicine is taught as the balance of knowledge and application, so has empathy been recognized as both a value to be fostered and a skill to be learned. Medical curricula have reflected this, and while didactics are increasingly filled with various conversational frameworks and behaviors that convey empathy, rarely do they include specific language to convey it.”

Varsha Venkatakrishna is a medical student.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Giving language to empathy: lessons from palliative care.”
