Therapeutic communication with CMD patients
Part 2
Schulze, Walter
While the first part of this paper outlined the general aspects of communicating with CMD patients, the present article will describe the specific communication processes for the examination and consultation of patients with chronic pain. It will detail how to communicate with patients about their history and findings and will describe a procedure for the psychological consultation of CMD patients. Each individual element of this procedure serves a common purpose: to enable the patient to experience that they are capable of influencing their disorder and to thus motivate them to actively participate in their treatment.
