The impact of patient-physician race concordance on patient centered care
by Ahmed, Fareen, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 40; 1523082
Abstract (Summary)

Patient centered care considers patients' values, personal preferences, cultural traditions and lifestyles when it comes to implementing care and treatments. This study looks at the effect of patient-physician race concordance on patient centered care and focuses on which ethnic backgrounds are more impacted by this concept. When patients feel they can relate to their care providers, they tend to report higher satisfaction rates when it comes to their treatments. Results of this study can be applied to future research revolving around patient centeredness and can be used to determine how to enhance patient centered care for all patients.
