The doctor-patient relationship has been and remains a central part of health care and the practice of medicine. This relationship forms the foundation for effective evaluation and management of allergic disorders. Important aspects include developing trust, two-way communication, mutual respect and shared decision making.
Evidence based medicine (EBM) is the careful, clear, thoughtful and reasonable use of modern, best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. EBM integrates medical experience and patient values with the best available research information. The practice involves a process of lifelong, problem-based learning. The goal is better, more cost-effective health care.
