Discussion Question, Assigned Groups Announced for 24th National Conference Fourth Day – April 11, 2013 10 years ago Bill Burnett 2 minutes Last Updated on April 16, 2022 by Lee Burnett, DO, FAAFP Mark E. Clasen, MD, Ph.D., Wright State University, Dayton, OhioThe following is the Group Discussion Topic, based on a quote from the Proceedings of the Seventh National Conference on Primary Health Care Access, Williamsburg, Virginia, held in April 1996.The Second J. Jerry Rodos Lecture: Mark E. Clasen, MD, Ph.D.“[W]e as healthcare professionals know that most compliance occurs in the milieu of a trusting relationship that is culturally competent.“In this major thrust, that creating a real change in behavior, occurs best when the message is negotiated in one’s own language, articulated with the proper mixture of science, theology, and always love.“There is little doubt that a culturally competent care giver is more valuable than the high priest of technology who possesses 100% knowledge to heal, but who lacks the human translation about how to heal.“To loosely paraphrase an old adage: “a physician is frequently in error, but never in doubt.” For those in the audience who are not physicians, I want to assure you that ego strength is required to deal with pain and suffering, and demands a decisive, take charge approach, and is more egocentric than George Patton, especially when life and death matters hang in the balance.“. . . [H]owever, when the issues are weakness, being sick unto death, being rendered helpless, we more likely want to be a patient of a loving, caring physician who will guide us through the storm to the shoreline of restoration, health, and well-being.”Group 1 Pugno, Lead; Goodman, Scribe; Babitz, Crawford, Leong and PalafoxGroup 2 Bejinez-Eastman, Lead; Peck, Scribe Fine, Hansen and LeRoyGroup 3 Flinders, Lead; Kopes-Kerr, Scribe; Boltri, Hixon, Levitt and SquireGroup 4 Fowkes, Leader; Bowman, Scribe; Kimball, Lewis and WilkeGroup 5 Herman, Leader; Maudlin, Scribe; Burnett, WH; Fredrick and Schlegel Group 6 Frey, Leader; Wu, Scribe; Burnett, L, North and SchwartzGroup 7 Hines, Leader; Clasen, Scribe; Geyman, Olsen and Saffold people found this article helpful.
