How are you?
This is the most important question in health care to ask.
Three words. A ton of purposes.
Every clinician should ask this.
It says you care.
It gives permission to the person you care for to open up.
It sets the tone for partnership.
It gives you the chance (and responsibility) to listen attentively.
It’s the most social act in the world.
It leads to better care.
So, how are you?
