Navigating Patient Refusal of Care from Physicians-In-Training | Ethically Sourced Ep17
Play • 24 min
This episode discusses a situation that is not-uncommon in teaching hospitals across the country. At some point, physicians-in-training will have patients that would prefer to be seen, examined, or treated by a "real doctors." It is important to attempt to understand these patient's concerns and level of understanding on how the healthcare system works. In this episode, I look at these events from the perspective of the patient, trainee, and attending physician.  It is important to prioritize patient autonomy, as well as maintaining an appropriate and supportive relationship with residents and other healthcare providers. I discuss a recent situation I personally encountered and how I successfully navigated the interaction. This episode is extremely pertinent to attending physicians at teaching hospitals, patients and healthcare students.  It is my hope that generating discussions on Clinical Medical Ethics and Culturally Competent Care will have a positive impact on the lives of our patients.
