Embedded within the art of Chiropractic, in addition to analysis, diagnosis, and technique, is the art of doctoring. Central to this uniquely human experience is the doctor-patient relationship. The application of the generally recognized elements of a good doctor-patient relationship (e.g., truthful communication, empathy, trust, helpfulness, and respect for patient autonomy) can lead to improved patient outcomes. This lecture will focus on all elements of the doctor-patient relationship with an emphasis on communication as a core clinical competency.
