The aim of the course is to provide insight for the students about the possible types and causes of altered states of consciousness in the somatic medicine. The newest genetic and imaging studies bring medicine nearer to a deeper level understanding of consciousness, while the experiences gained from the medical practice gives us useful support in recognizing that the impact of illnesses, fears and hospital surroundings make the patients more sensitive to the statements of doctors. Utilizing these knowledge can provide optimalization for the doctor-patient communication, thus creating more understanding and a better healing surrounding, which can lead to a greater satisfaction and faster rehabilitation between patients.
