Communication test predicts problem doctors

From Reuters:

Physicians coming out of medical school with lousy communication skills end up getting more complaints down the road from patients, and tests can find the doctors with problems, according to a study published on Tuesday.

The study confirmed that tests like one given during the medical-licensing process in Canada can predict which doctors would run into trouble and underscored the importance of a doctor's ability to communicate well with patients.
