Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Providing thorough responses to patient questions is an important part of the provider–patient relationship and key to good communication. Failure to do so puts patients at risk of looking for alternative and possibly harmful answers. Mindfulness is a popular topic, but due to its vague definition and variable outcomes, it may be difficult for health care providers to know how to answer patient questions or to identify patient needs. Using the One-Minute Preceptor model as a template provides health care providers a thorough yet organized and time-efficient method while also giving patients answers to their questions.
