Emotions and empathy

David Ian Jeffrey

pp. 73-98

Students describe the risks and benefits of emotional connection with a patient. They describe how they are taught to distance themselves from patients and so come to see this as being "professional". The model for detached concern in professionalism is described and explored. They discuss ways in which they strike a balance between connection and attachment. Appropriate boundary setting is explored.
