Doctor + Patient (Arts + Patient) is a research project to improve the communication between doctors and patients in order to expedite and improve a proper diagnosis.


Doctors and patients don’t always understand each other. This may be due to the difference in knowledge but also because of miscommunication or false assumptions. This book provides insight into the different and surprising ways in which both doctors and patients map the human body and could identify areas of pain. Simple drawings and a set of colored pencils become a tool for better understanding between doctor and patient, resulting in quicker and better diagnostics.
