What does it mean to “care” in healthcare? That depends on who you ask: the patient or the doctor. There is an age-old phenomenon in social dynamics whereby older adults make sage recommendations or give instruction to younger adults, but younger adults frequently choose not to comply with these recommendations, to the disadvantage of their own long-term health and welfare. Why does this phenomenon occur in families, on the job and even in doctor-patient relationships? The problem can be defined as a conflict of perception. Dr. Kevin Orieux has studied these conflicts of perceptions for over 25 years, both in his clinical practice as well as from his sociological research of group dynamics in the workplace, and he provides insights on how people can resolve conflict by using a medical approach to solve social problems.
