Adam Dicker on How Nurses Help Combat “White Coat Syndrome”

Adam Dicker explains the benefit of nurses when communicating with patients, and how they help to combat "white coat syndrome."

Adam Dicker, MD, PhD, from Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University, discusses the importance of the nurse in patient communication.

When it comes to physicians, Dicker claims they tend to focus on hearing about adverse events from patients. Nurses, however, can probe further, as well as understand what is going on in the other aspects of the patient’s life. Additionally, some patients may suffer from “white coat syndrome,” and not want to admit a certain side effect to a physician.
