Dr. Leana Wen is on a mission to change medicine. That road can be a little bumpy, especially when you ask physicians to change the way they practice. If her book, 'When Doctors Don't Listen' caused a stir among her colleagues, her ideas about physician openness opened the door to outrageous online abuse. Check out her amazing talk from TEDMED 2014!
This week on the Functional Forum we are talking about vulnerability in medicine. In this podcast Dr Wen argues, and we 100% agree, that physicians need to learn to be vulnerable with patients as it is in the only, and quickest, way to develop trust with patients. In the infectious disease model, this was not a necessary skill, but as medicine evolves to treat the causes of modern epidemics, this is an idea whose time has come.
