The Conflict of Conformance and Caring
Francis W Peabody described fundamental secret of the care of the patient being caring for the patient. Practice of medicine demands perfection and compassion. However, current regulatory environment brings in new and ever changing requirements which are tied not only to reimbursement but also to public perception of care, often creating conflict with the traditional concepts of caring. This session will allow attendees to learn to negotiate modern measurements of quality of care while providing compassionate care to their patients.
