This is NOT good news for Patient Engagement

There have been earlier studies showing that clinicians tend to interrupt the patient at the start of the encounter.  At a time when patient engagement and partnership are strongly being endorsed, one would have thought we’d be doing better by now.  I guess not !

Here’s a quote from a new study, attached:  “The patient’s agenda was elicited in 36% of the clinical encounters. Among those in which the agenda was elicited, patients were interrupted seven out of ten times, with a median time to interruption of 11 s.”
