    Assessment Tool Helps Learners Become More Engaged with Patients

    Researchers at the MU School of Medicine have developed a test to measure medical students' ability to deliver patient-centered care. Students interact with a standardized patient actor and are assessed based on certain behaviors with the patient. Kimberly Hoffman, a CHCQ investigator, describes the test: "[It] forces the future physician to go beyond just determining a diagnosis and to focus on behaviors that play an essential role to the effectiveness of the care he or she provides."
