If the patient had a solution for their problem they would not be seeing you. Therefore you must understand they will not have all the information you need to solve their problems. You will need to discover and figure out what is relevant and how to use it. You will learn that structure in this course. Starting with Listening, the power of listening to a patient’s story is profound. How to use their words to build trust and also recognizing what they left out of their story can be key.
