Description

This session considers how social differences between doctor and patient have the potential to contribute to inequalities in health. The example of "social class" is used, but similar principles can be applied to any encounter where there are cultural differences.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Discuss how differences between doctors and patients in socio-cultural background, education and power may impact on patients’ experience of healthcare encounters and thus healthcare outcomes
• Describe how you may reduce this impact in the consultation
