Primary Care Interviewing Book Excerpt:

Primary care is complex, unpredictable, and requires a biopsychosocial orientation. An indispensable teaching resource, Primary Care Interviewing: Learning Through Role Play thoroughly details how to use role play to teach the basics and more complex aspects of medical interviewing skills to trainee clinicians. Role playing is ideally suited to teach clinicians how to interview and relate to patients, and this unique and concise title includes not only sample role plays and dialog but also a wealth of accompanying online video role plays to enhance the learning process. Part one presents how to teach basic interviewing skills needed for effective communication, such as joining, promoting self- awareness, open-ended communication, dealing with emotions, structuring skills, and asking questions to uncover concerns and related beliefs, or theories of illness. Part two addresses the teaching of specific, more complex interviewing skills, such as addressing a patient’s mental health issues, sexual health, somatic conditions, and giving bad news.

Illness Narratives in Practice Potentials and Challenges of Using Narratives in Health related Contexts Book Excerpt:

What is it like to live with an illness? How do diagnostic procedures, treatments, and other encounters with medical institutions affect a patient's private and social life? By asking these types of questions, illness narratives have gained a reputation as a scientific domain in medicine in the last thirty years. Today, a patient's story plays an important role in doctor-patient communication and the development of a healing relationship. However, whereas patient experiences have been well acknowledged, methodologically reflected upon and widely collected as research data, less consideration has been invested in exploring how they work in practice. Used in the context of diagnosis, treatment, and teaching, patient stories give us a new perspective on how healthcare could be improved. Illness Narratives in Practice: Potentials and Challenges of Using Narratives in Health-related Contexts highlights the problems, challenges, and opportunities we face when using patient perspectives in practice and research in a clear format to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of this field. It investigates the epistemological foundations and communicational properties of illness narratives, as well as the pragmatic effects of using them as clinical and educational instruments. Significantly, it presents new examples from patient intakes and interviews that illustrate the disparity in communication between patients and medical professionals. The studies in this book also evaluate the experiences of medical practitioners and students who consciously use patient narratives as a tool for improved communication and diagnosis. Divided into eight sections with practical examples for medical teaching and practice, this book covers the use of patient narratives in communication training and decision making across medicine and psychotherapy. In addition, it reflects on the ethical aspects of working with a patient's personal experience of their illness, reports on cultural differences across the globe, and analyses how patients' stories are used in politics and the media. Written by scholars from multiple disciplines across clinical and theoretical fields, this rich resource provides a critical stance on the use of narratives in medical research, education, and practice.

Pediatric Interviewing Book Excerpt:

Ô ObivoV brac ?vV, eJ de teJcnh makrhv Life is short, [the] art long —Hippocrates Pediatric Interviewing: A Practical, Relationship Based Approach by James Binder is filled with a unique blend of wisdom, experience, and evidence, which will serve as a guide and as a reminder that what comes first in the care of the patient is the language and the silences that are shared between patient and physician. The medical interview quickly establishes the type of caring relati- ship the two will share. In this age of electronic medical records, pay-forperformance, and evidence-based medicine it is easy to lose sight that medicine is fundamentally about one person who has knowledge and experience providing care for another individual who is asking for help. How the physician organizes his or her interactions has an important impact on the experience and o- comes for both the physician and for the patient. Dr. Binder presents a conceptual framework with which to approach interviewing and illustrates this framework with pr- tical examples from years of teaching and practice. Physicia- intraining will find this book filled with wisdom and much needed recommendations about how to approach the medical interview. For those of us who have been in practice a number of years, Dr. Binder’s book can serve as a refreshing opportunity to reflect in detail about something many of us take for granted – the c- plexity of the medical interview.
