AMA Doc Talk, a series from the American Medical Association, features physicians and other health care leaders who share real-world experiences and findings about the ever-evolving health care landscape. Based on real-world learnings and anecdotes, each episode is centered around a topic related to delivering care to patients. Here, physicians and health care leaders will collect a wealth of practical information they can apply to their daily practice of medicine and to the promise of a healthier nation.
There’s no quick fix for chronic disease, but finding the right words to help a patient through this challenging (and seemingly endless) journey can help make the road smoother and outcome better.
We’ll hear from Dr. Rushika Fernandopulle, MD, co-founder and CEO of Iora Health, who will share how patients’ relationship with care teams, along with attitudes and beliefs, can affect the way patients cope with their chronic disease.
We’ll also hear a patient’s unique insight and perspective.
