A short synopsis of my thoughts: In addition to diagnosing and treating disease, part of a physician’s job is to elicit information from patients about their symptoms and then provide patients with clear explanations and instructions regarding their treatment and the expected course of their disease. Additionally, the physician must be able to communicate with all other members of the health care team in order to corroborate and ultimately provide the best possible patient care. This spectrum of communication styles is no simple feat. To be an effective communicator in the healthcare theatre, a physician must be able to switch from high level academic vocabulary and translate that information often into a sixth-grade level of comprehension. Compliance and healthcare literacy are two very well-known factors that directly affect patient care and patient outcomes. Verbal and non-verbal communication skills are important skills in the armamentarium of physicians and should be practiced as similarly as surgical skills. Communication studies in medicine have demonstrated that male and female physicians communicate differently and conduct physician visits differently. Historically female physicians have been known to have longer visits and engage in more emotionally focused talk and psychosocial exchange then do their male counterparts. These differences in communication styles have broad impacts in the patient physician relationship, as well as the information that is obtained and ultimately recorded in the physician record. In recent years, studies have shown improved outcomes as quantified by fewer rehospitalizations, lower morbidity and fewer 30 day mortality in patients who have had female hospitalists. It is the purpose of this paper to further understand and define the difference that exist in communication styles by gender of physicians and determine whether those differences correlate positively or negatively with patient outcomes. questions to ponder 1. How do male and female physicians differ in communication styles? 2. How has the electronic health record changed communication? 3. Have previous studies demonstrated a link between male and female communications style and the potential for differences in patient outcomes? a) Cover page (1 page) b) Table of Contents (1 page) c) Abstract or Executive Summary (1-2 page) d) Introduction (1-2 pages) e) Literature Review (minimum of Fifteen (15) scholarly sources) in an APA format with In-text Citations. e) Research Design f) Research Questions (a minimum 3 questions) f) Data Collection and Analysis ? Describe your data collection process (survey, existed data, observations, past studies, etc.) ? How are you going to evaluate the validity and internal consistency of your data? g) Conclusion and recommendations h) Reference page in APA format (please read our Plagiarism Policy) I) Appendixes (Graphs and/or Charts, Tables, and figures
