"Baar baar poocho": IMA recommendations for effective patient-physician communication

Patient outcomes depend on successful communication especially, in cases where sensitive or personal information is sought. IMA's "Baar baar poocho”"approach aims to sensitize the medical fraternity in this regard.

Sharing private and sensitive information in such an environment can seem overwhelming for the patients.

IMA’s "Baar baar poocho" approach warrants that the physician should politely question patients regularly and multiple times, about sensitive information related to depression, alcohol use, smoking habits, drug abuse, and sexual needs and preferences.
