9780231164443: Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors and Patients

The health-care system in the United States is by far the most expensive in the world, yet its outcomes are decidedly mediocre in comparison with those of other countries. Poor communication between doctors and patients, Dennis Rosen argues, is at the heart of this disparity, a pervasive problem that damages the well-being of the patient and the integrity of the health-care system and society.

Drawing upon research in biomedicine, sociology, and anthropology and integrating personal stories from his medical practice in three different countries (and as a patient), Rosen shows how important good communication between physicians and patients is to high-quality―and less-expensive―care. Without it, treatment adherence and preventive services decline, and the rates of medical complications, hospital readmissions, and unnecessary testing and procedures rise. Rosen illustrates the consequences of these problems from both the caregiver and patient perspectives and explores the socioeconomic and cultural factors that cause important information to be literally lost in translation. He concludes with a prescriptive chapter aimed at building the cultural competencies and communication skills necessary for higher-quality, less-expensive care, making it more satisfying for all involved.

About the Author:

Dennis Rosen, MD, is a pediatric pulmonologist and sleep specialist at Boston Children's Hospital and assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. He writes regularly for the medical press as well as for the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and Pacific Standard. He is also the author of Successful Sleep Strategies for Kids (a Harvard Medical School Guide).

Review:

I applaud Dennis Rosen, MD, for bringing attention to an important aspect of medicine in our modern world. Thorough and robust, his stories are engaging, true gems of health literacy and the appreciation of cultural influences. These and other aspects make Vital Conversations an excellent source of ideas on how to enhance treatment.

(Joseph Shrand, MD, Harvard Medical School, author of Outsmarting Anger: 7 Strategies for Defusing our Most Dangerous Emotion)

At a time when there has been marked degradation of physician-patient communication, Dennis Rosen, MD, takes us back to the basics: the need for ways to foster an exquisite and intimate connection. He clearly understands what doctors should do to raise the bar, and it is fully captured in Vital Conversations.

(Eric J. Topol, MD, Scripps Research Institute, author of The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care)

Timely.... Full of personal anecdotes, selected research in biomedicine, sociology and anthropology and lots of footnotes (but reader friendly), Rosen's book should be read by physicians and students of medicine and nursing, as well as laymen interested in our medical system.

(Judy Siegel-Itzkovich The Jerusalem Post)

Provides moving examples of actual patient scenarios.... [that] establish Rosen as a caring and empathetic physician with a wealth of experience to share.

(Amy Forman Massachusetts Jewish Journal)

As a final-year medical student, I can’t help but wonder if my communication skills are at their peak—I have an abundance of time to spend with my patients, no financial targets to meet, and I receive regular training and feedback on this very aspect of my work. I will keep Rosen’s excellent book with me next year as a reminder not to let communication lose its place as the diagnostic tools become too many to fit in my box.

—Jina Pakpoor, The Lancet

Dennis Rosen, MD, argues that physicians can heal the health care system by taking the time, and by making the effort, to understand patients’ needs before prescribing treatment. His argument, along with advice on how to achieve this understanding through physician patient communication, is useful to all participants in the health care system (patients, physicians and other health care providers, public policy and opinion makers, and third-party payers and providers).

—David Caldwell, PhD: Journal of the American Medical Writers Association
