HealthLeaders Magazine;May2010, Vol. 13 Issue 5, p28
The article discusses the considerations and requirements for making surgery more patient-centered. It suggests that the patient should be involved in the healthcare decision-making, particularly, in determining whether surgery is the best treatment approach. It emphasizes that the patient's family should get involved in the care which begins with the initial office visit. It points out that for surgery to be more patient-centered, feedback from patients and their families should be obtained and the quality and speed of operation should be improved.
