Clinical Uncertainty in Primary Care - An exciting new book jointly edited by Dr John Launer

Dr John Launer, Associate Dean, Faculty Development has jointly edited a newly published multi-author international book called ‘Clinical Uncertainty in Primary Care’

The book focuses on peer group supervision for primary care clinicians and the clinical uncertainty endemic to their work. Even when seemingly straightforward, each patient raises unique questions regarding how best to listen to their complaints, empathize with their suffering, or respond to their silences.

 The book provides;

  • an overview of the role and importance of clinical uncertainty in primary care practice and education
  • practical methods for engaging clinical uncertainty as a collaborative, collegial enterprise
  • the tools for primary care providers to reconnect with medicine as primarily relational and sense making

 Further details about the book can be found at:   http://www.springer.com/medicine/book/978-1-4614-6811-0
