EXST7015 Daily Design 19 Carefully read the description of the experiment below. Be prepared to answer the questions that follow the design description as a class quiz. Empathy in the health care setting is the ability to understand a patient’s experiences and feelings and the capability to communicate this understanding. Empathy plays an important role in the dentist-patient relationship. We examined the psychometric properties of a measure of empathy applied to the dental school setting and compared levels of empathy in dental students across their four years of training. One hundred and thirty students completed a survey including the Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy (JSPE). The study sample consisted of 130 dental students (eighty-five men, forty-five women) at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. This represents 61 percent of the total student body at the time the survey was administered, a response rate considered "good" for mail survey research.
