How the Patient-Clinician Relationship Will Help Us Survive the Pandemic

Original Live Date: December 8, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm ET

COVID has increased the sense of social and physical isolation in our society. Clinicians are experiencing tremendous strain as they adapt to a “new normal” that has magnified the flaws in the U.S. health care system, and patients are adapting to that system under strain in unprecedented ways. What would happen if patients and physicians came together virtually to (re)connect, talk openly about their experiences, support one another and find the silver lining that might show a better way forward? Could this help mitigate clinician burnout and patient disengagement with care? Might this be a platform for collaborative action aimed at transforming care processes or advocating for policy change?
