Chapter 8 focuses on the recent enhancements to clinical processes that improve the patient–provider experience and increase successful long-term outcomes. Professionalism has at times been criticized as not being genuine, but clinical care is like an Olympic sport, it takes a lot of training to become effortless and natural. By actively incorporating essential components of the biopsychosocial model, patient-centered care, interprofessional collaboration, motivational interviewing, the stages of change model, healthcare ethics, and model strategies from clinical psychology, it is possible to engage in more successful and satisfying outcomes with patients. Because most chronic problems are not truly best served by a series of injections or surgeries, we need to increase knowledge of, motivation toward, and competence in the range of chronic condition management approaches that are evidence-based, safe, and effective in clinical practice.
