The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the traditional way patients are cared for around the world. The measures that have had to be adopted to prevent the spread of the infection in health centers (hospitals, primary care, outpatient centers, social health centers, etc.) have changed the way professionals and patients interact, altering the conditions of hospital stays, how people go to centers or receive assistance through telephone consultations or other means of communication, including telemedicine programs. There have been radical changes to which patients and professionals were not accustomed.
Learning from this experience can help to identify key elements to achieve a positive patient experience, to identify always events to achieve a positive experience, and also practices that should be reconsidered once the pandemic is behind us.
This monograph seeks to incorporate scientific and technical debate proposals at a conceptual, methodological, and applied level that gather the lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to offer respectful care according to the expectations and needs of patients, even under adverse conditions.
Prof. Dr. José Joaquín Mira
