thca 230 -
In the Medical Schools for physicians, a few years ago there was a last year course added to help young physicians communicate better with patients, of varying ages. Many students called it "Bedside manners", but it was more than that. I am not certain I would call it a reform movement, but it got a lot of attention in the press.
Physicians are hard pressed for time in dealing with patients, given third party payers attention to other things: Physicians are not rewarded for spending time with patients.
