Abstract

Healthcare around the world is facing a series of challenges. Though there is publicity given to the technical dimensions, there is an urgent need to make healthcare more humane. This has become more essential given the volumes of information available in current context. The available information has resulted in patient knowing more than the health professionals about their own health needs. The concept of medical humanities is new and gaining awareness. This could be solution to ailing medical practices not just in Bhutan but also globally. This is reflected in many of the policies where medical humanities is gaining attention.
