HORSE SENSE At Webb Ranch, horses teach Stanford medical students how to better relate to their human patients By Maggie Mah Johnson

D

r. Beverley Kane is a physician with an impressive resume. She teaches secondand third-year medical students how to be better doctors. She uses horses to do it. WHOA! What’s up with that? Since 2005, Dr. Kane has been the program director for “Medicine & Horsemanship” at the Stanford School of Medicine. The course is designed to help doctors develop the interpersonal skills necessary for good communication with patients and other doctors, a key issue in health care. Studies by the American Medical Association and others show poor communication to be a common cause of medical errors. It is often a factor in malpractice suits and patient dissatisfaction, and has a lot to do with whether a patient follows through with treatment.

According to the AMA, the ability to empathize decreases as medical students deal with increasing time constraints and the strain of treating people in highly emotional situations. “Many health-care professionals have not developed the emotional intelligence and perception required for clinical excellence,” Dr. Kane says. On top of that, patients don’t always say what’s really going on. It’s left up to the doctor to figure things out. “We’ve all been socialized into hiding our feelings and reactions, especially from somebody in a white coat,” says Dr. Kane. “Horses will tell you in no uncertain terms how you’re affecting them.” HOW HORSES HELP

Many experts agree that much and maybe most of human communication is non-

verbal. But in medicine, as elsewhere, the focus is on spoken and written words. Tuning into non-verbal communication could make an enormous difference, maybe even between life and death. Unlike most humans, horses are experts at non-verbal communication. Evolving as prey animals, their survival has depended on being extremely sensitive to minute gestures, eye movement and emotional energy. The way horses respond to body language makes them uniquely suited to teach humans that Photos by Michelle Le/The Almanac actions can speak louder than words.

CHAPMAN Case No. 119308 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of ROBERT M. CHAPMAN. A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by: BRUCE R. CHAPMAN in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN MATEO. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that BRUCE R. CHAPMAN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are

available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on October 23, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 14, Room: 8B of the Superior Court of California, San Mateo County, located at 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in section 9100 of the California Probate Code. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ Barbara J.
