Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society
"Healing Relationships in Medicine" is a joint project of the Vanderbilt Medical Center and the Baptist Healing Trust to identify skills that facilitate compassionate relationships with patients.
We are devoted to creating research tools that can meet future health care needs while promoting the public´s acceptance and trust in research.
One qualitative study is examining how a patient´s illness trajectory is interpreted in different ways by patients, families, and care providers.
