How whole-person care can make us better healers
“My lifelong quest to become a healer — over 40 years as a family physician, scientist, and researcher with the National Institutes of Health, the World Health Organization, the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, and the Department of Defense — has led me to conclude that the best way to forge the strongest, most effective doctor-patient partnership is not to limit my questions to ‘What’s the matter with you?’ in an attempt to make a medical diagnosis. Instead, we must attempt to get to the root of our patients’ health and well-being goals by asking: ‘What matters to you in your life?'”
Wayne B. Jonas is a family physician.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “How whole-person care can make us better healers.”
