Let’s Change How We Think About Difficult Patients

On episode 467 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Joan Naidorf, an emergency physician, speaker, and author based in Alexandria, VA. In the course of their conversation, Keith and Dr. Naidorf discuss her 2022 book, Changing How We Think About Difficult Patients: A Guide for Physicians and Healthcare Professionals.

Dr. Naiforf’s thesis is that we can all too easily fall into the habit of thinking negatively about our patients. She also contends that, when it comes to how we think about our most challenging patients, there are clear steps that we can take to change that calculus and stop allowing our relationships with patients to be poisoned by negativity, judgmental attitudes, and resentment.

Dr. Naidorf trained at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. She is board-certified in emergency medicine.
