Doctor in the House: Empathy in Healthcare

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. What do you look for when you seek healthcare services? Do you want to be treated as a collection of symptoms, or as an individual with your own unique challenges, needs and feelings? Amid a crisis that has highlighted the suffering of the most vulnerable in our society, we’re starting the new year with an episode that looks at why empathy in healthcare is important, not only in improving patient care, but also how it could change the way healthcare professionals feel about their work.
