The Medical Benefits of Finding and Nourishing Realistic Hope

Description: Wendy S. Harpham, MD, FACP of Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas discusses the medical benefits of finding and nourishing hope, which help patients deal with their uncertainty. She defines hope as a pleasant feeling linked to the belief that the desired outcome can happen. Ultimately, hope is a shared mission, and doctors can help patients by sharing their own hopes for them having the best possible outcome.
