“The practice of caring for patients is a delicate process that needs to focus on comprehensive care. There needs to be a partnership which is built on trust, respect, and open communication. In order for this to be successful, patients need to be heard and empowered in their own care while at the same time working toward a mutual goal of optimal health for the patient and family.”
