Richard Freeman on the physician-patient relationship

by Christina on January 19, 2010

I was really excited to come across this clip by Richard Freeman about the physician-patient relationship (less than 2 minutes if you have the time).

How the physician should educate patients — give them a self-knowledge so that they then turn into their own doctor.
How people who are healing or have been healed know their bodies and know their disease.
How a new model of equal partnership between physician and patient is replacing the archaic model (of doctor as the authority figure and patients as little children).
