Empathy in Health Care

In his lecture, Dr. Brian Goldman focuses on the way health professionals often treat patients with dementia as an example of how we could improve.
He gives some of the reasons why we have seemingly lost the capacity for empathy and demonstrates, using his own experience with his aging parents as an example, how he now appreciates the patient point of view. Dr Goldman also talks about initiatives in health care that reveal a new-found sense of empathy.

Delivered by Dr. Brian Goldman at the University of King’s College on 21 February, 2013.
