AbstractAs patients are increasingly involved in the selection of their care, communication between health care providers and patients takes on new importance. The present article reviews the most common approaches to improve patient communication, distinguishing among patient-directed and provider-directed approaches, as well as introducing multimedia programs designed to enhance communication. We conclude by delineating new critical areas for future research including peer-to-peer patient communication and the challenges brought on by new technologies.
