Patient-centered care is a hot topic in health care these days, though usually when we think of patient-centeredness, our thinking tilts toward aspects of policymaking or system delivery. Host Dr. Janet Wright takes a look at the science side of patient-centered care — the more precise tailoring of therapy known as personalized medicine — with Dr. Geoffrey Ginsburg, founding director of the Center for Genomic Medicine at the Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy and professor of medicine and pathology at Duke University School of Medicine. Dr. Ginsburg also shares what he considers to be the top priorities of this field, forging a path from the research to clinical care. How might personalized medicine impact cardiovascular care in the years to come?
