It presents case examples of the many problems encountered in patient-doctor interactions and provides ideas for dealing with these more effectively. It covers a wide range of topics and issues including palliative care, abuse, dying patients, ethical challenges and the role of self-awareness. Many narratives originate from patients' and family members' experiences, providing perspectives of great power and value. The Patient-Centered Care series is of great value to all health professionals, teachers and students in primary care.
