BrainWaves #64 I wonder: the angry patient

MedLink Neurology
Podcast is delighted to feature selected episodes from BrainWaves, courtesy of James E Siegler MD, its originator and host. BrainWaves is an academic audio podcast whose mission is to educate medical providers through clinical cases and topical reviews in neurology, medicine, and the humanities, and episodes originally aired from 2016 to 2021.

Originally released: July 18, 2017

Two weeks ago, Dr. Rubenstein and I discussed one of the difficulties of being a doctor. This week, we're shifting gears, and the focus is now on the patient, particularly the angry patient. Dr. Hamedani shares his experience of being the nicest dude in the world and how he deals with hard-to-deal-with patients.

Produced by James E Siegler and Erika Mejia. Music by Peter Rudenko, Steve Combs, and Lovira. Voiceover by Erika Mejia. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for routine clinical decision-making. ...But you can probably learn a lot about how to talk with your patients from Dr. Hamedani. So take some notes. He invented the bedside manner.

We believe that the principles expressed or implied in the podcast remain valid, but certain details may be superseded by evolving knowledge since the episode’s original release date.
