Bridging Diverse Experiences in Clinical Relationships
2022 National Meeting of the American Balint Society
January 26 - 28, 2022, Tucson, Arizona
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Edgoose
“The daily work of clinicians is conducted in face-to-face encounters, whether in exam rooms, homes, or alongside hospital beds, but little attention has been paid to the responsibilities and ethical implications generated by this dimension of our relational work...Yet what does it mean to look into the face of a patient who looks back? We believe this simple act causes many of the frustrations of current clinical practice, but also many of its most precious rewards. These rewards must be better understood and appreciated now, when medical technology and pressures of productivity are diminishing face-to-face encounters.” (Edgoose JYC and Edgoose JM. Finding hope in the face-to-face. Ann Fam Med. 2017 May/June; 15:272-274.)
We are excited to feature this outstanding physician, scholar and educator as our keynote speaker.
