  • New Book by Michael Trout

    Mr. Trout’s newest book (co-authored with Mary Koloroutis) was released at the ANCC (American Nurses Credentialing Center) Magnet Conference in Los Angeles.

    See Me As a Person: Creating Therapeutic Relationships with Patients and Their Families draws on many years of attachment research and clinical practice with infants and their families to suggest a specific model for healthcare providers to connect with their patients—and, in the process, improve their efficacy, the patient’s sense of being seen, and patient satisfaction with the quality of care.

    The book rolled out at this 9,000-attendee (principally physicians, nurses and hospital administrators) national conference because of its importance in the healthcare delivery world. Mr. Trout and Ms. Koloroutis joined Stephen M.R. Covey and Mark Kelly (astronaut and husband of Representative Gabrielle Giffords) in a book-signing on October 11 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

    It is hoped that this new volume—clearly crossing disciplinary lines to name and encourage behavior that some nurses and physicians engage in intuitively—will make a significant contribution to the dramatically-changing world of healthcare delivery.
