12:00 pm Supporting Patients with Vulnerable Communication within Healthcare Settings

Current research documents causal relationships between poor patient-provider communication and poor patient outcomes, medical errors, and increased healthcare utilization. In addition, there is ample evidence to demonstrate that effective patient-provider communication increases the likelihood that a patient’s problems are diagnosed correctly, patients understand and adhere to recommended treatment regimens, and patients and their families are satisfied with the care they receive. Effective communication between patients and providers is increasingly being viewed as an essential component of quality healthcare and patient safety, as well as the basic right of every patient.

This webinar will discuss and illustrate the role that communication tools, technologies and strategies can play in addressing patient-provider communication issues across healthcare settings. We will consider ways in which members of the professional community can support effective communication with vulnerable patients using case illustrations.
