Product Description:
Over 20 years ago, Dr. Carol M. Davis created the path for teaching health care professionals how to develop self-awareness and communication skills critical to providing ethical, compassionate, and professional treatment and care to their patients.

That path is Patient Practitioner Interaction: An Experiential Manual for Developing the Art of Health Care, now in its Fifth Edition.

While the ways of communication have evolved over the last 23 years, the face-to-face role of the practitioner and patient has not. With technology having a large presence in health care, the personal interaction and comfort provided by the health care professional serves an even more important purpose in facilitating healing with therapeutic presence.

Patient Practitioner Interaction, Fifth Edition begins with chapters that assist students in self- awareness and understanding of their own history in developing their values and communication skills. This then guides the student into learning how to differentiate personal values from professional values.

In the remaining chapters, Dr. Carol M. Davis and her contributors take Patient Practitioner Interaction, Fifth Edition into the heart of the text: teaching actual skill development in communicating with patients, as well as skills in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. The updated exercises at the end of each chapter encourage an essential element in the inculcation of these fundamental skills--reflection and personalization of the material to one's own story.

New in the Fifth Edition:
* A new chapter on communicating about spirituality that teaches health care professionals to better assess the needs of patients and families dealing with hope, faith, and despair
* New material on communicating in the information age
* A reorganization of the chapters, contemporary terminology, and references
* New and updated exercises at the end of each chapter in the book
* A companion website that includes the chapter exercises--available with new textbook purchase
* Updated instructors material for faculty use in the classroom

From the Foreword by Dr. Helen J. Hislop:
"The author and contributors have made the topic not just a walk through social and personal issues and professional and personal behaviors, they have encased it in a scientific format of mainstream humanity, within each individual, between a caregiver and a care receiver, between friends or adversaries. Even more notably, Dr. Davis has provided health professionals with a road map to personal growth and worth and a source of human behavior that will engender faith, trust, and open and honest interactions between patients and therapists--in short, a thesaurus and encyclopedia of the sacred trust that must exist for a successful humanitarian experience in the health care arena."

Patient Practitioner Interaction: An Experiential Manual for Developing the Art of Health Care, Fifth Edition by Dr. Carol M. Davis is the answer to every curriculum's need to develop effective interpersonal professional behavior in their students.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
