Abstract

This chapter addresses the practical dilemma clinicians' face today to be both efficient with the EMR while engaging in meaningful patient-centered interactions. It starts by outlining best practices and strategies for patient-centered computer use with patients and details barriers encountered in implementing these techniques. We describe curricular approaches to teach these skills and evaluation tools to assess learners. In addition, we highlight an institutional model for a longitudinal curriculum. Lastly, challenges to curriculum implementation are discussed, including the need for institutional support and required training across the continuum of learners in order to ensure sustained positive behavioral change.
