The Village

by Academy of Clinical Excellence on February 27, 2015






We often talk about “patient or family centered care” but rarely see it practiced in our culture. Clinical excellence is contingent on the physician being aware of what Halima has described as the “village”.

In a time when discharge summaries do not even tell us who a person is, even in a short sentence, we are a very long way from understanding and supporting the “village”. This is a huge challenge for “clinical excellence”.
