Effective Communication Skills to aid Positive Doctor–Patient Relationship

Ravindra B Deokar, Sandeep S Kadu, Kalidas D Chavan



Abstract

Patient satisfaction is achieved through the communication behaviors of doctors: Their dominance, concern about the psychosocial issues of the patient, illness perceptions, concordance between the doctor’s communication style, the patient’s need for attachment, and the patient’s attitude. There are varied expectations and levels of patient satisfaction due to the omnipresent sociocultural matrix where the doctor–patient relationship is influenced by different cultural interpretations: Class, gender roles, ethos, language, and religious affiliation.
