Ethnic and Racial Disparities Contributed Papers: Patient-Provider Relationship and Communication
How patients and providers relate and communicate can affect patient adherence to treatment recommendations, satisfaction, and health outcomes. This session examines the patient-provider relationship and communication from the perspective of racial and ethnic disparities. Papers discuss shared decision-making, patient trust, language barriers, and provider cultural competency as potential modulators of disparities in health.
