The doctor's power

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:17am

Patients hang on to every word a doctor says, which means doctors wield immense power with what they say - and with what they don't as well ! Unfortunately, most doctors don't realise the importance and impact of their body language, because this is not something anyone teaches them, as a result of which they often mess up the verbal and non-verbal signals they transmit. Every doctor should remember that they are an "actor" in the consultation room, and they are performing for an audience of one - their patient !
