Giving a patient a templated instruction printout isn't the best medical treatment after starting a medication. Far better is personal education, reinforced at home. This requires applying social science in medicine. Although many disciplines constitute social science, four are close associates of health care: psychology, education, anthropology, and sociology. Five of this issue's Original Articles describe social science interventions that produce medical science outcomes.
