“Good” Patients and “Difficult” Patients — Rethinking Our Definitions
http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1303057

Quote
Abiding by the unspoken rules of medical etiquette, I had quieted my internal alarms for more than 2 hours.

Quote
When we call patients and families “good,” or at least spare them the “difficult” label, we are noting and rewarding acquiescence. Too often, this “good” means you agree with me and you don't bother me and you let me be in charge of what happens and when.

Re: Communication and/or negotiation skills


Chapter 31
Communicating with the Difficult Patient or Family

Quote
Difficult patients, defined as those who do not assume the patient role expected by the healthcare professional, are encountered in every setting

Quote
Labels, such as difficult, hateful, or crazy, tend to follow patients and family members throughout the medical care process and negatively affect the way they are approached and treated (Lin et al., 1991).

Quote
By reinforcing and modeling professional behavior and avoidance of labeling, the team leader promotes high quality and safe, patient-centered care.

Medical Records were not meant to be “Sugarcoated”
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/medical-records-were-meant-sugarcoated-christian-assad-kottner


Quote
I am now encountering physicians, being contacted by their patients, arguing that they do not appreciate being called obese in the note. They do not appreciate hearing that they are not compliant when obviously they are not. Since physicians do not want to aggravate more people then they reword or simply refrain from placing particular information in the chart.

But does, say, your podiatrist really need to know about the abortion you had 10 years ago?

Quote
Given the option, 49% of the 105 patients who participated decided to withhold at least some information from their doctors. Four patients went so far as to withhold all of it, meaning every time they saw a doctor, they’d start with a clean chart. Every single patient, even those who wanted doctors to see all their data, said they wanted to be asked.

Contrary to what you may have heard in your Twitter/tradeshow/conference echo chamber, most people have no interest in running around with a miniature ICU strapped to their wrist, and couldn’t care less about the difference between lymphocytes and monocytes.

The new draft says no more “5% rule” – they only have to show that one patient has done it, and they’ll get full federal reimbursement.



I agree w/Dave on lots of stuff, but as long as I can get access if I want it - that's what seems important to me ... @AtulGroverMD has a good point about how docs shouldn't have to force people to look.

For many, the response by over 2,300 physicians came as no real surprise.

Quote
I can’t get away with labeling a patient in my chart as a symptom magnifier or minimizer, having poor insight into their contribution to the problem, describing pain that does not fit with the setting or findings, making poor choices, non-compliant.


Quote
The point is, the collected information, assessment and plan that the patient and clinician are basing diagnosis and treatment on should be used as a collaborative tool, not as the clinician’s private record of why they did what they did (to the patient).


I admire this approach/philosophy.

Quote
For most people, of course, it’s all too easy to simply leave their health records in the hands of doctors and hospitals. But that’s a big mistake, the advocates argue. First, it gives doctors too much power over information that is vital to patients, and it creates opportunities for errors. Perhaps more important, it keeps patients from using the information themselves for their own benefit.

Records in hand, I began to google every word I didn't understand to see if I could learn more.

If I had to pinpoint an exact moment when this patient advocacy mission began, that moment would be it.


------------------------------------------

I guess I'm a fan of transparency.  I can deal with hurt feelings or difficult news, but let me know what is going on.  There may be some sense in letting the doc talk to a patient before giving them the record like in the cancer example.

"The tragedy of the electronic health record"

Quote
Time, sympathy, and understanding must be lavishly dispensed, but the reward is to be found in that personal bond which forms the greatest satisfaction of the practice of medicine. One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.
—Francis W. Peabody

Quote
the authors described their institution’s and physicians’ experiences with electronic health record (EHR) systems, discussed the general state of EHRs and how they are used today, related the problems they have experienced with EHRs, and made recommendations for changing how we use them to reestablish the primacy of the doctor-patient relationship

Most (92%) patients believe they should have full access to their records, while only 18%
of physicians share this belief. Interestingly, about half (49%) of patients believe they have full access (see Figure 5). The perception gap about EHR access has widened in the past two years, a 42% decline in physicians and a 10% rise in patients.

Epic is not well-suited to communicating a patient’s complex experience or a physician’s interpretation of that experience as it evolves over time, which is to say: Epic is not built to tell a story.
