Chapter 9 discusses the ability of doctors to communicate with their patients, which has long been recognized as essential for the practice of medicine. More recently, however, there has been a growing recognition that some styles of communication are more effective than others. This chapter addresses how effective communication can be taught and learned, and that the ability to communicate should be assessed as part of the assessment of clinical competence for medical students and doctors.
