What has become of the doctor-patient relationship in the era of managed care and Internet prescribing? How does the electronic health record affect clinician-patient communication? Medicine and Horsemanship is a Stanford University-based student elective and Continuing Medical Education course that employs horses to teach non-verbal communication and other interpersonal skills for the clinician-patient relationship and all professional interactions.
Now with the Manual of Medicine and Horsemanship-Transforming the Doctor-Patient Relationship with Equine-Assisted Learning, anyone with an EAL, EAP, EGE, or EFEL practice can conduct Medicine and Horsemanship.
You will learn the practical and philosophical principles of teaching good bedside manner. You will get detailed, step-by-step exercises needed to conduct equine-assisted learning programs for medical students and healthcare professionals.
