Jewish Values, Empathy, and the Doctor-Patient Relationship

Source: ResearchGate

I propose that modern Jewish thought, exemplified by the writing of Martin Buber, is one useful way to understand the underlying the significance of a clinician-patient encounter and the character traits required in clinical practice. Empathy in patient care, Buber might argue, is humanistic action that reflects an often-unacknowledged religious sensibility.
