Should Hospital Physicians Address Outpatient Clinic Letters to Patients?
The Academy of Royal Medical Colleges has released new guidance that encourages hospital physicians to address outpatient clinic letters directly to patients, without using medical jargon. This initiative is meant to strengthen the doctor-patient relationship and provide patients with a better understanding of their condition. General practitioners, who receive a copy of these letters, could also benefit, as they will spend less time interpreting medical terminology for confused patients.
