Welcome to the
The Drossman Center for the Education and Practice of Biopsychosocial Care (DrossmanCare) is focused on improving healthcare by improving doctor-patient communications. The Center is located at Sutton Station, 5826 Fayetteville Rd., Suite 201, Durham, NC 27713.
Improving doctor-patient communications is shown to improve healthcare outcomes for both patient and doctor. With the DrossmanCare training, doctors, physician assistants, and nurses can learn how to communicate with patients for maximum benefit, increasing the satisfaction and outcomes of all parties.
DrossmanCare was founded by Dr. Doug Drossman, a world-renowned expert in medicine and psychiatry, who is sought after both for his specialist expertise in gastroenterology (specifically functional GI) and his ability to communicate with and teach communication with patients.
We seek to improve patient outcomes through enhanced patient-provider communications from a biopsychosocial perspective. We maintain the fundamental components of patient-centered care: active listening, mutual goal setting, providing empathy, educating and collaborating in treatment.
